Common dog poisons

We all know dogs will eat EVERYTHING. Here are some of the most common poisons that dogs will eat.

Chocolate

Xylitol & other sugar substitutes

Human pain medications (- this includes Tylenol, Motrin, Aleve, Advil) & all prescription drugs. We all know how hard it can be to give a dog a pill, but drop one of yours on the floor & go to pick it up & they will quickly grab it.

Rat, gopher, mouth poisons - these are really attractive to dogs & they will search them out. The newer ones are really bad & there is no antidote for them. This is an emergency & they needed to be treated right away. The 2 most serious ones are bromethalin (attacks the nervous system) & zinc phosphide (releases a poisonous gas if dog vomits). Always bring in the product label so we know what we are treating.

Grapes & raisins

Oxygen absorber packets that are found in food packages or pet treats

Snail Bait - causes seizures. The only pet-friendly snail bait is the plain Sluggo ( not the one that also kills insects)

if your pet eats any of these things call us ( 408-254-3550), an animal emergency clinic, or the Pet Poisin Helpline ( 1-800-213-6680 $35 per call)

Do not wait until your pet shows signs to call!

Be sure to bring in product label!
