Did you know that there may be substances in and around your home that are poisonous to your pet? Would you know what to do if your dog or cat were poisoned? Download Pet Poison Help for information on hundreds of household products and plants that are potentially toxic to your pet, and steps to take if your dog or cat is exposed to one of these toxins.
Pet Poison Helpline, a 24/7 animal poison control center based in Minneapolis, MN, answers over 100,000 calls a year regarding pet poisonings. We created Pet Poison Help to assist pet owners or veterinarians in quickly identifying potential poisons, recognizing symptoms of a potential poisoning, and to allow one-touch direct dialing access to the veterinary professionals at Pet Poison Helpline. Pet Poison Help will provide you with:
* Life-saving access to poison information with one-touch direct dialing to Pet Poison Helpline.
* A searchable database of over 250 poisonous plants, foods, medications and household items, all with pictures.
* Descriptions of how specific poisons affect your pet, their alternate common names, and symptoms to watch for.
* Instructions on what to do if your dog or cat is exposed to a dangerous substance.
This application (app) is designed as an informational resource for pet owners to keep their animals safe from the effects of poisonous substances, but it is by no means exhaustive. When it comes to poisonings, keep in mind that the amount ingested, along with the time since ingestion, overall health, age, species, and breed of your pet may affect the severity or outcome of any toxic exposure. When in doubt, please contact your veterinarian or Pet Poison Helpline for immediate, life-saving advice.
This app is really handy. I hope I never have to call the poison hotline, but I've used it to determine if certain flowers and such are toxic to my pets. I'd recommend this app for pet parents to help prevent a tragedy.
Very nice so far :)
This is a comprehensive app containing pictures and information about a wide range of substances that are toxic to pets (plants, foods, household chemicals, etc). I think it will be incredibly useful to any pet-owner whose pet has a penchant for poisoning itself! Of course, there are a couple of things I'd like to see in the next update. Releasing it as a universal iOS app rather than an iPhone app would be nice (though it looks "fine" on the new iPad when running at 2X, it could look "great!"…); I'd also like the author to consider the possibility of allowing an in-app purchase upgrade that would include additional treatment information useful for veterinarians in clinical practice. As it stands, though, it's a very nice app. Good job!
I must has misunderstood.
The way this was described to me at WVC in Vegas was that it was for vets. I was looking forward to having a good pocket toxicology reference that included treatment protocols, not just potential symptoms and a phone number. Close, but not quite there.
