As a pet owner it is important to know which people foods are poisonous or toxic to your pets. Of course, here at Leesville Animal Hospital we always recommend that you refrain from feeding your pets people food all together but if you can’t help yourself from sharing with your dog, take a look at the information below to see some of the most recognized toxic human foods to dogs.
If you are a Leesville Animal Hospital client and believe that your pet has ingested something toxic, it is crucial that you get your dog to us as soon as possible. If you can, we also recommend calling on your way in so we can prepare for your arrival. Our phone number is (919) 870-7000.
If you are unsure as to whether something your dog has ingested was poisonous or not, you can call the ASPCA Poison Control Hotline at (888) 426-4435 or the National Pet Poison Helpline at (800) 213-6680.
If you think that your pet has ingested something toxic and it is after regular Leesville Animal Hospital hours go immediately to your local emergency animal clinic rather than waiting for a call back from our emergency vet. Toxic substance ingestion is a situation in which time is of the essence. We recommend ALWAYS keeping the address to your closest emergency animal clinic in Raleigh NC on your GPS, your phone or on a piece of paper on your fridge so that you can get there as soon as possible.
