Who do you recommend for after hour Emergencies?
We are fortunate to live in an area with several after hour facilities. My first recommendation would be MedVet of Cincinnati on Red Bank Expressway. 513-561-0069 Open 24 hours. www.medvetohio.com.
What do I do if my pet ingests something poisonous?
As soon as you realize your pet may have ingested something toxic, you must contact us right away. If the hospital is closed, contact MedVet Emergency Clinic at 513-561-0069.
The key to successful treatment is early detection and treatment initiation. When in doubt-treat for it! **The majority of toxins cause harm over time giving you the false impression that your pet is "fine" when they are not. The toxic effects are not always reversible, however the majority of them are treatable if caught early enough.
To research the possible exposure. Go to the ASPCA Poison Control website: http://www.aspca.org/Home/Pet-care/poison-control.aspxp
