This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.


The best things- come in little- packages

Rosie and Isabel posted this a while back, but I wanted to repost for those who may have missed it. Its run by Kansas State University:

The number:

This is a totally free, 24 hour phone number.
I also wanted to thank Rosie and Isabel for telling me about it because I actually had to call it last night. Brody ate a couple of pieces of onions, and given his size, I was worried that the amount would be toxic.

The people were friendly, and calm, which is good because I wasn't calm. A receptionist answered, and then connected me to a toxicologist. They told me that Brody didn't eat enough to be toxic. Whew. He also told me what symptoms to look for, in case Brody ate more than what I suspected. And he said that if I noticed those symptoms to take him to the vet.

The roads were covered in ice last night, so I was glad that I could talk to a veterinarian/toxicologist. What a relief. Plus, its FREE.

Please, if your dog gets into a potentially toxic substance, don't hesitate to call this hotline.

Thanks Brody! Mom was just trying to find that number for our "emergency numbers"
list 'cause we have a doggie sitter this weekend.

Now we don't have to search forever to find it!

"The people were friendly, and calm, which is good because I wasn't calm."

I know I can't remember where my head is when I'm panicking. Thanks for the numbers. I'll keep them handy.
