Poisoning is much easier to prevent than to treat. And it never has to happen in the first place. Just remember:
- Never feed your dog chocolate.
- Always consult the veterinarian before giving your dog any over the counter medicine.
- Prevent your dog from gaining access to rat poison, other rodenticides, and household insecticides.
- Read and follow herbicide (weed or grass killer) instructions regarding the length of time pets must be kept away from treated areas.
If you suspect your dog has ingested a poisonous substance, call your veterinarian immediately.
