You Need to Know About These Household Items That Poison Dogs Daily in Las Vegas

You Need to Know About These Household Items That Poison Dogs Daily in Las Vegas


Gentle Doctor Animal Hospital is your Las Vegas, NV emergency vet for times when you need fast effective care for your pets. If you think your pet may be showing signs that they have gotten into something around the house or yard that is bad for them, be sure to call us immediately. These signs may include vomiting, diarrhea, sudden coughing, lethargy, bleeding from the nose or mouth, and general un-wellness. Because they cannot tell us they don't feel good with words, and they cannot typically understand our warnings about what to avoid, our diligence can literally save lives. 

Check Your Home For These Items Right Now:

  • Antifreeze has proven to be both deadly and irresistible to dogs. It has a naturally sweet flavor that dogs love but is a poison that kills them horribly and quickly. Today most antifreeze companies add a bittering agent to make their product less tempting but it does not mean your dog won't still try and older batches may still be sweet. 

  • Sago Palms can be a lovely addition to the front yard, but if you have dogs it is best to choose another plant because they can cause liver failure, uncontrollable bleeding, and death if your dog decides to chew one up. 

  • Poisons for other animals need to be protected because your dog or cat will not understand that this is just for a rat, and they will ingest them willingly to their peril. 

  • Keep your Tylenol, prescriptions, vitamins, and supplements out of your pets reach. Even a relatively small amount of your medication can be dangerous to Fido.
