About one-quarter of all phone calls to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) are about human medications. Your pet can easily ingest dropped pills or may be given harmful human medications by an unknowing owner, resulting in illness, or even death, of your pet.

Please note: If you are experiencing a behavior issue with your pet, please visit with your veterinarian about the problem right away. Sudden changes in behavior are often caused by underlying medical issues. In many cases a trip to the veterinarian can save you time and frustration, and help prevent potential harm to your pet(s) and loved ones.
