March 18 to 24 is National Poison Prevention Week.  Here are a few tips to keep your pet safe:

• Be aware of harmful foods like avocados, raisins, chocolate, and coffee.
• Store human medications safely — not on low night tables or counters.
• Make sure toxic plants like tulips, lilies, and azaleas are out of reach.

If your pet ingests something poisonous, the ASPCA's Animal Poison Control Center (APCC) can help at 1-888-426-4435. A $65 consulting fee may apply, but a portion of that charge is covered by your plan.
