When an animal companion gets into something it shouldn't, such as plants, cleaners and medicine, help may be a phone call away with Pet Poison Helpline . The service is professionally staffed around the clock and available to pet owners and veterinary staff who require assistance treating a potentially poisoned pet for a flat fee.
The service, staffed with specialists, charges US$35, which includes follow-up consultations for poison cases of all pet species.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
