Awareness And Diligence Are Critical To Preventing..

 


Awareness and diligence are critical to preventing poisoning emergencies. Here are common symptoms of poisoning.



In honor of “Pet Poison Prevention Week” and helping more pups, my dog safety book, For Dog’s Sake! is on sale all week! (I’m happy to sign your copy. Just leave a note on your order).

Awareness and diligence are critical to preventing poisoning emergencies. Most calls to pet poison helplines involve dogs – dogs will eat just about anything and this often gets them into trouble. One of the most common culprits of pet poisonings is human medications. Medications can drop on the floor and get grabbed out of an unattended handbag. Some medications, like NSAIDs and cough and cold relievers can be deadly to cats and dogs.

If you suspect that your fur baby has been poisoned, in most cases the sooner you get treatment, the better the outcome. If you can, take the substance/packaging with you to the vet, so he or she can see what your pet ingested and take appropriate action.

Keep the Following in Mind:

Like humans, all fur kids are different. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to reactions to toxic substances and illness. The following factors all play a role:

SIZE, AGE, PHYSIOLOGY, OVERALL HEALTH, ALLERGIES, BREED

The amount of the toxic substance ingested and what part is ingested (leaves, fruit, pit, etc.) also plays a role in your pet’s reaction.

Eating and drinking are not the only ways your pets can be poisoned. They can also absorb toxins through the skin and can also inhale toxic substances.

Reviews of my book:

“I’ve always wanted a diagram to evaluate Zelda’s poo, and now I’ve got it. And although I hope we’ll never use it, I now feel very well-versed in the doggy Heimlich maneuver. This book rules.” —Seth Rogen

“I love this book! Real, practical dog advice made fun and easy.” —Victoria Stilwell, the world’s best-known positive reinforcement dog trainer and star of the hit Animal Planet TV show, It’s Me or the Dog.
