Protect your Pet from Poison

Poison PreventionPlease join with the Animal Shelter in protecting pets from insecticides and other harmful chemicals.

  • Consult your vet before using flea products on young, pregnant, or elderly dogs and cats.
  • Store automotive products like oil, antifreeze, and windshield washer fluid out of your pet's reach.
  • Know that plants in your house and your yard can be poisonous and/or fatal if ingested by your pet. Azalea, oleander, Castor bean, sage palm, Easter lily, and yew plant material can be lethal.
  • Keep household products like fabric softener sheets, mothballs, potpourri oils, dishwasher detergent, homemade play dough, batteries, cigarettes, and pre- 1983 pennies out of your pet's reach.
  • Understand that some foods acceptable for human consumption can be harmful if ingested by your pets. Foods such as: chocolate, onion, onion powder, alcoholic beverages, yeast dough, coffee, tea, salt, stems of tomato leaves, and stems from potatoes.
  • If you treat your lawn with fertilizers, insecticides, or herbicides, keep animals away from the treated area until it is completely dry.
  • Never give your pets medication unless directed by a veterinarian. Pain killers, cold medicines, anti-cancer drugs, anti-depressants, vitamins, and diet pills can be fatal even in small doses.
