Pet Poisoning

MN Poison Cat Photo

Dogs and cats are by far the most common companion animals owned, and as a result, make up the majority of pet poisonings. Pets have to be watched like a two year old child, they get into things that may not be good for them. Medications, plants, foods, cleaning supplies and other toxic substances must be kept away from pets to avoid accidental poisonings.

The Minnesota Poison Control System does not take calls related to animal poisonings. If you suspect your pet may be poisoned, please contact your veterinarian. If your veterinarian is not available, two other resources have been listed below. The Minnesota Poison Control System has no affiliated with either of these resources. A fee may be associated with using these resources.
