What To Do If Your Pet Eats Something Poisonous

What To Do If Your Pet Eats Something Poisonous

If you suspect your pet has ingested a toxic substance, please call our office immediately. If it is outside office hours consider taking your pet directly to a 24-Hour Emergency facility or contacting the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at (888) 426-4435. Trained toxicologists will consider the age and health of your pet, what and how much he ate, and then make a recommendation—such as whether to induce vomiting—based on their assessment. A $65 consultation fee may be applied to your credit card.
