Pet Poison Helpline

Tis the season y'all... It is not just chocolate!  Treats containing the artificial sweetener xylitol are poisonous to dogs and cats. We had to rush two dogs to the ER once because Daddy left his Sam's Club extra large packages of sugar free gum all over the coffee table.  Everything turned out fine but we all had some serious moments of concern.  The Daddy did learn his le$$on! 

Pet Poison Helpline ~ 800.213.6680

It will be helpful to have the time of the exposure to the toxin, how much was ingested and the manufacturer's name and ingredients.  

Some other useful numbers...
ASPCA Ani-Med ~ 888.721.9100
These two are fee based services so have a credit card handy!
