Pet Poison Prevention

March is National Pet Poison Prevention Awareness Month and it is a crucial time to educate ourselves about potential hazards that could harm our pets.


As pet owners, it's our responsibility to keep our homes safe and free from substances that could pose a threat to our pets' health.



Many common household items, such as the following can be toxic to pets if ingested:

Certain foods

Plants

Medications

Chemicals


During this month, we emphasize the importance of pet-proofing our homes and being mindful of what our pets have access to.


Simple steps like storing medications securely, keeping harmful foods out of reach, and being cautious with household cleaners and pesticides can go a long way in preventing accidental poisonings.


It's also essential to recognize the signs of poisoning in pets, which may include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, drooling, seizures, and difficulty breathing. If you suspect that your pet has ingested something toxic, it's crucial to seek immediate veterinary care.


At Passion Pet Care Services, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients' pets. During National Pet Poison Prevention Awareness Month, we encourage all pet owners to take proactive measures to safeguard their pets from potential hazards. Together, we can create a safer environment for our pets to thrive in.
