National Pet Poison Prevention Month was established to help raise awareness and prevent illnesses and injuries for pets.
Human medications like NSAIDs, acetaminophen, and antidepressants can cause serious health issues when ingested by pets.
Symptoms of poisoning in pets vary depending on the substance that has been ingested. A few signs of poisoning include vomiting, diarrhea or bloody stool, excessive urination, loss of appetite, and seizures.
Call your veterinarian or local emergency pet hospital immediately if you believe your pet has eaten something they shouldn’t have.
