Poisoning Emergencies in Pets

Pet family members can sometimes find their way into places and things around the house that are harmless enough to us, but to them can present a serious toxic risk. If your pet has accidentally ingested a substance such as a household cleaner or other chemical or a food item like chocolate, steps must be taken immediately to see that no harm is done.

Current clients may call during regular hours for urgent care. Southwest Michigan Animal Emergency Hospital, a true pet emergency facility, is prepared at all times for poisonings and other critical situations.

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center provides emergency poisoning consultation via telephone, 24 hours a day, year round. It’s also a great place to learn about the most common risks for poisoning and what to avoid.

Preparing for Pet Emergencies

Pet emergencies are never easy to deal with and are always best handled by an experienced emergency veterinarian. Even so, it is always a great idea to be prepared. Assembling an emergency kit in advance can prove helpful in many situations, and can potentially help save the life of a critically injured pet family member. The American Veterinary Medical Associationís pet first aid checklist is a useful guide to getting started.

I have been taking my beloved animals to Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital for over 12 years. I was never able to have children so my animals are my kids. Dr. Del Heckaman and his highly trained staff handle my animals with kind and gentle care. I have recommended Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital to many people down through the years. I highly endorse them because they are the best! If I ever move out of state I will still bring my pets back to Oshtemo Veterinary Hospital. ~ Cherie W.quote
