If your pet just ingested something toxic, calm down! While it’s very stressful, know that the more calm, cool, and collected you are, the sooner you can seek the correct medical attention. First, get a handle on the situation by following these guidelines:
Keep in mind that the prognosis is always better when toxicity is reported immediately, so don’t wait to see if your pet becomes symptomatic before calling for help. It’s always less expensive and safer for your pet if you call immediately. Remember that there’s a narrow window of time when we can decontaminate (induce vomiting or pump the stomach) in cases of poisonings!
