Happy Tuesday! For today's #tuesdaytips we will cover some common poisons.
We are often at this time of year going to friend's or family's homes and many people bring their pets along. A household without a dog/ cat or puppy/ kitten may not think about common poisons that are found regularly in households. Keep your eye on your pet when in another home, and know the local emergency hospital/ pet poison hotline.
What to do if your dog or cat is poisoned:
1. Remove your pet from the area.
2. Check to make sure your pet is safe: breathing and acting normally.
3. Do NOT give any home antidotes.
4. Do NOT induce vomiting without consulting a vet or Pet Poison Helpline.
5. Call your veterinarian or if you are out of town the local emergency veterinary hospital or Pet Poison Helpline at 1-855-764-7661 (a $59 USD incident fee applies)
