The ASPCA is offering a free Animal Poison control app in the event your pet should get into poison. The app makes it easy to quickly find what you are looking for e.g. plants, medicine, food. Has images for you to reference. The app tells you how toxic the item is based on the animal’s species and what actions you need to take for each poisonous item listed. Additional information on Chocolate and rodenticides to help you determine the severity. A click of a button will connect you to their veterinary staff.
Here is a partial list of some of the items causing people to call the animal poison control hotline frequently.
Xylitol–use as sweetener in some gums, breath mints, and baked goods
Over the counter meds such as Ibuprofen
Grapes and Raisins
Onions and other members of the allium family
