Most of us know that it can be dangerous if your pet accidentally ingests medication.
It is important to remember that topical products can also pose a significant risk. Direct ingestion, spills and splashes, or simply licking the owner’s skin after the product has been applied.
Pain relief gels for joint pain, prescription vitamin D creams for skin problems, topical chemotherapy creams and hair loss foam are just some examples of topical treatments that can be dangerous even in small quantities.
If you think your pet has been exposed to a cream or other topical treatment, please call the Animal PoisonLine on 01202 509000. Our team are here 24h to take your call. Veterinary professionals should call the VPIS line on 0207 305 5055 for detailed treatment advice.
