Pet Poison Prevention Week

March 15 - 21 is National Pet Poison Prevention week.

At Royal City Animal Hospital we believe strongly in prevention as the first line of defense in your pet's health care.
Poison prevention is something we have to always be diligent about, as dogs and cats can get into many different things that they shouldn't despite our best intentions.

I am providing you with some great websites for information to have on hand in case something should happen to your pet.

Always call your veterinarian immediately if your dog or cat has ingested something they shouldn't have.

Also - know the plants you have in your home and whether they are toxic or not to your pets.

If you think your pet has eaten or come in contact with any toxic or potentially hazardous items, please call your Veterinarian immediately to know what to do. Do not wait as many treatments need to be administered quickly in order to save your pet from potential life-threatening complications.

Call Royal City Animal Hospital today at 519-763-4992 to discuss potential hazards
