Pet Poison Tips
There are many toxins and chemicals that can prove to be deadly to your pet. Every pet owner should keep Emergency Contact numbers posted near their phone in case of emergency.
If your pet has ingested a foreign object or substance DO NOTHING until you have contacted your regular vet, one of the emergency clinics or one of the pet poison hotlines. Some chemicals are very caustic and can cause more damage if the pet is made to vomit. Like wise some will not react well with such things like milk or antacids. In addition, some objects may go down easily but may not vomit easily, leading to a blocked airway.
Veterinary Emergency Service keeps a vast library of pet poisons and toxins. Do not hesitate to call us for guidance.
