March is Poison Prevention Awareness Month! Identifying what potential poisons exist in your home is the first step to keep pets safe. For a list of toxins, click here.
To prevent your pets from ingesting these toxic items, place medicines or hazardous substances higher and out of sight, and store food in cupboards or other places pets cannot reach. In case of an emergency, ensure your veterinarian’s phone number is in your phone. If you believe that your pet has ingested a toxic item, take them to the vet immediately.
This month is an important time to spread awareness for pets. Animals up for adoption, like Georgia and Willa, would greatly appreciate their future owners looking out for them!
