ASPCA : Animal Poison Control Center

I’m posting early before the holiday weekend in the hope that folks will be with family and friends when the post would usually go up.

I’m going to share some extremely useful links to the ASPCA’s Animal Poison Control center. The ASPCA provides support to pet parents and veterinarians as we handle a very common problem in practice: toxicities. They do charge for this service, but it’s often well worth the fee (which is around $65.00). They have a HUGE repository of knowledge that they’re willing to share to help treat pets that have been exposed to toxins. They’ve provided help for some of Pet Authority’s patients over the years, for which I’m very grateful.

The main web page is located here. They also have a FAQ.

Here is a list of the Top Ten Toxins for 2010.

Here is a list of Toxic Plants for dogs.

Here’s the list of Toxic Plants for cats.

Here’s the Toxic Plant list for horses.

Hopefully no one will need this information anytime soon, but I’d rather get it out there for everyone to see. Don’t hesitate to ask questions if you have them!

  1. Really great info! I’m filing away the emergency links — and hoping we never need them.
