Pets and Spring Cleaning Safety

Spring is coming!  Spring cleaning and gardening are great – but if you’re a pet parent you need to take some extra precautions.

I recently spoke with Dr. Tina Wismer, the Medical Director at the ASPCA’s Poison Control Center about just this.

  • Poisonous plants dogs get into
  • Symptoms of poisoning
  • What to do if you think your dog swallowed something dangerous

Below is the audio link to our conversation.
