Protect your Pets from Harmful Toxins and Foods

While some pet toxins, such as medications, can be kept out of reach and locked up, others are commonplace in and outside our homes. According to the Pet Poison Helpline, the top toxins for cats are lilies, topical flea/tick medication for dogs, household cleaners, antidepressants, stimulant medications such as treatments for ADD or ADHD, anti-inflammatory medications, essential oils, “rat poison”, onions and garlic, and vitamin D preparations (oral or topical). The most common toxins for dogs are chocolate, “rat poison”, anti-inflammatory medications, xylitol (found in sugar-free gum and foods like sugar-free peanut butter), grapes and raisins, antidepressant mediations, acetaminophen, vitamin D preparations, stimulant medications, and fertilizers. If you believe your pet has come into contact with any poisonous substance, immediately call your veterinarian or the Pet Poison Helpline, available 24/7 at 800-213-6680.
