Animal Poison Prevention During The Coronavirus Pandemic

With many families staying at home, there is an increased likelihood of pets ingesting table scraps. Some common people foods are toxic to pets. The most common food toxins for pets are chocolate, xylitol, grapes, raisins, caffeine, onions and macadamia nuts. The degree to which a food can be fatal depends upon the size, health and age of the animal and the amount ingested. In a busy household, pets can get into all kinds of things so keep the counters clear and make the trash can inaccessible. If you think your pet has ingested toxins, please call your vet and the Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435
