If you suspect your pet has ingested a questionable substance, call the Pet Poison Helpline 855-764-7661 or your veterinarian for assistance. Accurate and timely identification of the suspected substance is very important. Having the container, package, or label in hand will save valuable time and may save the life of your pet.
