Pet Poison Prevention

 

March is Pet Poison Prevention Month.  Unless instructed by a vet, avoid giving your pets anything meant for people (especially medications). Accidents happen, so if your pet gets into something they shouldn't, call a pet poison hotline like ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 888-426-4435.  They have toxicologists on staff and reference material that will help them determine what is harmful and instruct you on whether or not you need to take your pet to a veterinarian. 

If your pet needs to be seen by a veterinarian, Poison Control will contact us with a report that will tell us what you discussed with them and what they recommend for treatment.  Knowing what is dangerous for your pet and keeping it away is key. Some common toxins can be found below.   

 

Make sure to save the ASPCA Poison Control number into your phone.  It is 888-426-4435.
