Spare change sitting in your cup holder. Your morning vitamins on the counter. Spilled cleaner in the garage. Rodent bait waiting for its target in the backyard.
To us, these things seem so common… but to our pets, naturally curious as they are, these items are something new to explore. New to taste.
These common household products and plants can also be deadly.
March is National Pet Poison Prevention Awareness Month, established to raise awareness and prevent injury in pets.
Here at First Coast No More Homeless Pets, however, we realize the issue of pet poison prevention isn’t isolated to March, as our veterinarians treat cats and dogs throughout the year who have ingested products or plants they shouldn’t.
Let’s take this month to examine some common household foods, products and plants that can be toxic to our furry friends.
If you think your pet has eaten something poisonous, contact your veterinarian immediately. You can reach us by calling 904-425-0005 or call the Pet Poison Hotline at (855) 764-7661.
Do not try to induce vomiting on your pet unless instructed to do so by a professional. If after hours, go to an emergency clinic as soon as possible.
