National Poison Prevention week raises awareness of items that could make your pets ill.
Keep chocolate, gum, onions, and raisins away from your dogs.
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -
There's some important information for pet owners during National Poison Prevention week.
Veterinarians warn you that everyday household items can be harmful, even deadly, to your cats and dogs.
They see many cases of dogs and cats becoming ill from rat poison around homes.
They also warn cat owners that flea treatments made for dogs can be deadly to cats.
Thomasville Animal Hospital Veterinary Assistant Jennifer Glover said, “A lot of it is pet owner responsibility. Just pay attention to what you have around your house. And if you suspect your dog has gotten into something, don't hesitate to call us, because all we want to do is help them.”
Glover said chocolate, onions, raisins, and chewing gum are other hazards for pets.
