What should you do if your pet eats something poisonous?



Call your Vet or the Pet Poison Hotline @ 855-764-7661 immediately. Keep this number

handy- the sooner you get help the better off your pet will be. It is also a good idea to

keep hydrogen peroxide on hand just in case your vet or the helpline instruct you to

induce vomiting. This will depend on what your pet has eaten and is not always

beneficial so always get professional medical advice before treating your pet.
