As travel season gets closer, we wanted to share an important new resource that we think will be especially helpful for dog lovers traveling with their pets. The veterinarians at Pet Poison Helpline have just released a new iPhone app called “Pet Poison Help” that puts pet poison info at your fingertips as you travel.
The new app contains information on foods, drugs, chemicals and plants commonly found in the home and yard that are poisonous to pets. With more than 250 toxins, each listing includes a description, list of symptoms and a full color photo, which is very helpful for identifying poisonous plants and flowers. The photos can be expanded to full screen size for easy identification with just the tap of a button. Each toxin entry has a bright yellow banner across the top that indicates the potential severity of the toxin, from “mild to moderate,” to “moderate to severe.”
If you think your pet may have ingested something harmful, take action immediately. Contact your veterinarian or Pet Poison Helpline at 1-800-213-6680. Pet Poison Helpline charges $39 per call and this includes unlimited follow-up consultations.
