Recognising Poisoned Animal Symptoms

We can’t be expected to look after our pets every second of the day. Whether we’re at work, they’re let off the lead in the park or you’re focused on a TV series while they’re outside, there are loads of opportunities for your animal or pet to become poisoned.

If you believe they’re showing poisoned animal symptoms, you’ll want to get to the bottom of it quickly and confidently. Animal PoisonLine is a dedicated emergency telephone service that will help you establish if your pet has been exposed to something poisonous by providing accurate advice.

Here are three things you need to do if you’ve recognised poisoned animal symptoms in your pet:

·       Watch your pet carefully: Write down the poisoned animal symptoms that you’re seeing so that our service can gain an insight into the actual problems which are happening.

·       Establish the facts: To guarantee that your call to us is quick, informative and helpful, we’ll need some facts on your pet. The breed, age, weight, sex and name; the drugs and harmful substances you believe they may have come into contact with, and how it happened.

·       Call our 24-hour service: As veterinary poisons specialists we’re able to understand and gauge whether you need to visit your vet or whether the problem will subside in due course.

If you’d like to find out more about our service and discover whether your pet is showing poisoned animal symptoms, call us on: 01202 509000.
