Pet Safety Tips

If your pet has an accident, one of the most important things to remember is to stay calm. Your pet needs you to think clearly and act smartly. Here are more tips that can help in case of an emergency:

  • Be very careful handling an injured pet, who may be scared or upset. Even the sweetest animals can react unpredictably when hurt.
  • Call your veterinarian for help immediately. If your veterinary office is closed, contact a nearby animal emergency clinic.
  • If your pet has ingested poison, you can also call the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at 1-888-426-4435. A $65 consultation fee may apply, 90% of which is covered by ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.
  • It’s helpful to have information like your pet’s breed, age, weight, and details about the incident handy when you call your veterinarian or the Animal Poison Control Center.
  • Remember not to try and treat your pet yourself. Get the advice of your veterinarian or the Animal Poison Control Center first.

You may also want to consider enrolling in ASPCA Pet Health Insurance before an unexpected accident or illness happens. This way, you can focus more on your pet’s health and less on the cost of care. Learn more about the benefits of pet insurance for your pet now.
