What to Do if You Suspect Your Pet Has Eaten Something Toxic
Poison Control Centers:
Gather any packaging or remains of anything that was eaten or suspected of being eaten! This step will help speed up the diagnosis. Please don’t be shy; if it was marijuana or any other embarrassing (or illicit) product, please be honest with our team; it will speed up diagnosis and treatment.
The team in our emergency department works with you and your regular veterinarian to provide the comprehensive care your pet needs. Our medical team of experienced emergency veterinarians and technicians have extensive training in a complete range of emergency and critical care services.
