June Pet Tip - Poisons

Contact: Animal Services at 970-328-3647 or animalservices@eaglecounty.us

June 1, 2014 - Animal Services is dedicated to providing assistance and protection to Eagle County citzens and their family pets, so we're providing a series of pet tips in the coming months. Please watch for them on this site.

More than 100,000 cases of pet poisoning are reported in the U.S. each year. Nearly all are caused by common household items and are preventable.

What to do if you suspect your dog or cat is poisoned:

  • Remove your pet from the area.
  • Check to make sure your pet is safe: breathing and acting normally.
  • Do not give any home antidotes.
  • Do not induce vomiting without consulting a vet or Pet Poison Helpline.
  • Call Pet Poison Helpline at 800-213-6680.
  • If veterinary attention is necessary, contact your veterinarian or emergency veterinary clinic immediately.
