TVM has produced veterinary practice waiting room poster to highlight the hazards to pets in the autumn.

Common ‘Pet Dangers’ include:  

  • Human cold and flu medication 
  • Rat poison  
  • Xylitol  
  • Chocolate  
  • Anti-freeze  
  • Acorns and conkers  
  • Mushrooms 
  • Mouldy food  

 The poster also reinforces the importance of S.P.E.E.D when dealing with poisoned pets: 

  1. Stop the pet eating any more suspected poison 
  2. Phone the vets 
  3. Emergency appointment  
  4. Evidence – bring labels/samples/vomit 
  5. Don’t delay!
