"What should I do if my pet has gotten into something poisonous?"
Be prepared-Have your veterinarian's phone number in a convenient location
Take immediate action-Closely monitor your pet for symptoms, collect any vomit, diarrhea, etc. Make note of any items chewed or eaten by your pet.
Bring product and packaging, if possible, to the veterinarian clinic or hospital with you.
Provide History-Give detailed events and symptoms you have observed. It is critical to have this information for your veterinarian.
Be aware-watch your pet's closely and monitor them frequently for abnormal behavior.
After care is extremely important as well, monitor them even after care has been provided. Ask your veterinarian what to watch for.
These are just a few pictures of what mouse/rat poison can look like. Many come in different shapes, colors and sizes.
Most are not within a covered box, they lay out in the open on the ground, easy for quick consumption.
If your animal has a vibrant, abnormal color of fecal and/or vomit, consult your veterinarian immediately. Keep the bag or box to give the ingredients to the veterinarian.
With summer projects; yard work, gardening, automobile maintenance, we need to stay alert and prepared.
