Yout Pet Ate What? Is it Poisonous?

So stuff happens and in the crazy fun of Halloween festivities your pup indulged in some forbidden goodies. How much chocolate will make them sick? Is candy corn poinsonous? Your yorkie bobbed for apples? Your dane drank how much beer? Your doxie got a few too many hot dogs? Your veterinarian office is closed till morning? Should you go to the ER? YIKES So now what?

If your pet is in distress head to your closest After Hours veterinarian. DO I SERIOUSLY NEED TO SAY THIS?

If you pet is not in distress and you want to know if they consumed something toxic ....
Guess what? There is an app for that.
