ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center
Pet poisonings are common. Whether your pet has eaten some freshly baked brownies, taken one of grandpa’s pills, or found the mouse bait you hid in the garage, the veterinary toxicologists at the APCC are the people to talk you through it. In the event that your pet needs emergency treatment, the APCC will work closely with our veterinarians to determine the extent and type of poisoning, necessary treatment, and prognosis. The Animal Poison Control Center can also be reached at (888) 426-4435.
