  • 3. in case of emergency

    by: PixiesRevenge

    this is an excellent resource. we usually call our vet first before we would resort to this because our vet knows our animals and personal things - make sure you know what type of medicine it is, what it is for, make sure you hav e the bottle.. make sure you know the age, breed, maybe weight. how much your pet took... Hopefully you will never have to use this service

    Pros

  • 7. A real live saver!!!

    by: tdudis

    I worked for the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center for several years and it was (is) a first class operation!! Every day we handled thousands of calls from veterinarians, pet owners, pet sitters whose animals had a toxic exposure. We saved many many lives and it was a very rewarding experience. If only people know all of the things that could be toxic to their animals it would prevent so many of these catastrophies from happening.

    Pros

    Saves thousands of lives a week, incredibly smart toxicologists

    Cons

    None
