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.


    Below are lists of some of the various poisonous things that have been compiled by The Kennel Club.
