Record what and how much your pet ingested or was in contact with. Call your veterinarian or poison control center immediately. A local or national animal poison control center may give you instructions on how to control individual situations of pet poisonings.

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center Hotline is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year: (888) 426-4435. Be aware that a $55 consultation fee may be applied to your credit card.

Do not induce vomiting without talking to your veterinarian first! It is always helpful to bring the wrapper or container of the suspected poison with you to the veterinarian or the list of active ingredients. If vomiting is indicated, hydrogen peroxide will often induce vomiting in dogs and cats. With any suspected poisoning whether ingested, by contact, or through inhalation, seek veterinary attention immediately.
