Animal Poison Prevention

Our furry friends can be harmed by potentially poisonous substances, too. Get treatment advice for your pets from a trusted resource.

ASPCA Animal Control

They’re part of our families, our best friends and so much more. We know how important pets are. That’s why IPC is offering a great resource for any animal poison-related emergency: ASPCA Animal Poison Control.

ASPCA is based in Champaign, Illinois, and handles questions from the public much like IPC does for human poison exposure—24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If your pet or livestock ingested a potentially harmful substance, contact ASPCA experts by calling 1-888-426-4435. ASPCA may charge a consultation fee for the call, unlike IPC services that are free to the public.

Just as with human poison exposure, getting expert advice is essential to achieving the best outcome possible for your pet.

IPC is here to help. Calls to our helpline, 1-800-222-1222, for human poison exposure are free and confidential.
