If your pet ate something potentially poisonous, time is of the essence. You can reach the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at 888-426-4435. The staffers at the poison control center have comprehensive information about how much is too much and what to do about it. A consultation fee will apply. For emergency treatment, you should take your pet to a 24-hour emergency hospital listed above.

If your pet is sick or has a minor injury during our business hours, please give us a call. We may be able to help. We often can provide same-day urgent care appointments.
