What to do if your pet has ingested a toxin

PET EMERGENCIES:  Be sure to have all information ready for your veterinarian, including the type of toxin (it is helpful to bring the toxin’s container along) and your pet’s basic information (breed, weight, etc.).  It is also helpful to collect anything that your pet may have chewed or vomited in a sealable plastic bag.

Contact your Veterinarian or the ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control Center or Pet Poison Helpline.

Be prepared – always keep your vet’s phone number as well as the phone number of the closest 24-hour emergency vet clinic close at hand.  If your pet is not exhibiting any symptoms just yet or there is not a 24-hour vet hospital nearby, you may want to call one of the poison control centers listed below:
