Avoid Pet Emergencies by Protecting Your Animal From Common Poisons

There are a lot of things you can do in your home to keep your pet safe from poisonous substances:

  • Toxic Foods - A range of foods that humans can safely eat can actually be toxic to pets. This means you must keep secure items such as chocolate, garlic, onions, grapes and any pr4oducts that have caffeine.
  • Cleaning Supplies - Caustic substances are commonly found in ordinary cleaning supplies. Keep them locked up securely just as you would to prevent children from accessing these materials.
  • Pest Control - Baits for roaches, ants, and rats often include something tempting such as peanut butter, which can attract your pets too. Keep this bait well away from all pets.
  • Automotive Products - Antifreeze and gasoline must be carefully controlled, as ingesting any amount can prove injurious or even fatal to animals.
  • Treated Lawns - Do not let your pet go out to play on the lawn after it has been treated with chemicals for pest control as well as fertilizer. Pets will lick moisture off of blades of grass, resulting in them being poisoned.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Sammers is an 11 year old, Black, Domestic Short Hair Cat. His owner noticed that Sammers was pacing, walking around in circles at home and crying out in pain.

    "I would like to thank all of the staff who helped with Sammer's UTI. He was miserable, and you guys made him better. I cannot thank you enough for helping him. It is great to have a place to go when all the other vet clinics are closed.""
    Roxanne & "Sammers"- June 2012
  • "Kahlua is a very special service dog. He was brought in by his owner when she noticed that Kahlua was acting very painful and didn't want to jump. After a thorough exam Kahlua went home with some pain meds. Kahlua's mom stopped by our Facebook page to send us a note on his progress.

    "Just wanted to thank Dr. Cavanaugh, straight from the heart for seeing our Kahlua and putting our worries to rest. It was hilarious trying to get him to take his Tramadol.... cheese would not work but the Chunky Skippy did the trick. WE THINK YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!! So thank you, straight from the heart.""
