The Pet Poison Helpline created this list of items, presented in order of frequency, that caused the most emergency calls in 2014.
7. Insect Bait stations: These rarely cause poisoning in dogs-the bigger risk is bowel obstruction when dogs swallow the plastic casing.
8. Perscription ADD/ADHD medications: these amphetamines such as Adderall, Concerta, Dexedrine, and Vyvanse can cause tremors, seizures, cardiac problems and death in pets.
9. Glucosamine joint supplements: Overdose of tasty products such as Cosequin and More Fee typically only cause diarrhea; however, in rare cases liver failure can develop.
10 Silica get packets and oxygen absorbers: Silica packs found in new shoes, purses, or backpacks is rarely a concern. The real threats are the iron-containing oxygen absorbers found in food packages like beef jerky, which can cause iron poisoning.
Now you know the items that can cause harm to your beloved dog. . .and awareness to keep them safe.
