Dangerous foods

Foods bad for your dog

If you witness your pet consuming material that you suspect might be toxic, do not hesitate to seek emergency assistance, even if you do not notice any adverse effects. Sometimes, even if poisoned, an animal may appear normal for several hours or for days after the incident. Call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (24 hours a day, 365 days a year.)

The telephone number is (888) 426.4435. There is a $65 consultation fee for this service.
