KEEP YOUR DOG AWAY FROM THESE KILLERS!


There are a very wide variety of things in and around us that are poisonous to dogs, some in the home and even

more in the garden.

 

If you think that your dog may have eaten, touched or inhaled something that it shouldn’t have, you should contact

your Vet for advice.

 

In some cases, an urgent visit to your Vet is needed but do not try to make your dog sick as this can cause other

complications which may cause more harm to your dog.
