EASTBOURNE Vets has issued a warning about palm oil.

It says: “Just to warn you all, we have had a couple of cases of palm oil ingestion on the beach at the harbour in Eastbourne.

“Please be extra vigilant when in the area as this can cause serious gastrointestinal issues for your dog.”

Palm oil has a white waxy appearance and is harmful to dogs if eaten.

The borough council issued a similar warning two weeks ago
