Immediate action for suspected pet poisoning.

When every second counts, knowing what to do if your pet has ingested or been exposed to a toxic substance can save their life. At Small Animal Emergency Hospital of Westfield, we stress the importance of quick and informed action in cases of pet poisoning. If your cat or dog requires emergency care after you have called the National Animal Poison Control Center at 1-888-426-4435, we are here to help. 

Common Household Pet Toxins

Pets can be exposed to a variety of toxins within a typical home environment. Common substances that are poisonous to cats and/or dogs include:


Chocolate, xylitol (found in sugar-free gums and candies), grapes, and raisins can be extremely toxic to pets.


Lilies, azaleas, and tulips are particularly dangerous to cats and dogs.


Antifreeze, insecticides, and rodenticides are highly toxic and can be found around the home.


Both over-the-counter and prescription medications can pose serious risks if ingested by pets.

If you suspect that your pet has been exposed to or ingested one of these poisonous substances, the first step is to call the National Animal Poison Control Center at 1-888-426-4435. This vital service has a consultation fee, but the guidance you receive can save your companion and maybe an emergency visit. They will issue a case number that can be used by our veterinarians for reference if emergency treatment becomes necessary.
