The ASPCA has a
poison control hotline phone number for pets.
If you have reason to suspect that your pet may
have been exposed to
something toxic, either internally or externally,
this phone number will
connect you with an ASPCA veterinarian specially
trained to assist pet
owners or other vets.
This is the only dedicated animal poison control
hotline in the
world manned by veterinarians, not telephone
operators. The number is
(888) 4ANI-HELP or (888) 426-4435
