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.
