Did your dog or cat just eat something poisonous? Call your veterinarian or Pet Poison Helpline immediately. The sooner a dog poisoning or cat poisoning is diagnosed, the easier, less expensive, and safer it is to treat your pet. This Pet Point Helpline website has a lot of very helpful information for free, but if you call their 24 hour animal poison control service (U.S., Canada and Caribbean), you will be charged $39. This may well be worth it if you don’t have quick access to Veterinary advice regarding a potentially poisoned pet.
This fee covers the initial consultation as well as all follow-up calls associated with the management of the case.
There is also a lot of reference material on the site including a comprehensive list of poisons, including many every-day items. They list the Level of Toxicity, Common Signs to Watch For, and a general description. There is also some information on pet food/treats recall. It’s worth a visit.
