What steps do you take to prevent your pets from suffering from poisonings? We live in a world in which we and our pets are constantly assaulted by toxins capable of causing mild to severe health problems.
Our yards, air, food, water, medications, supplements, and others are potential sources of poisons that can affect our pets. Fortunately, there are strategies pet owners can take to minimize our pets' potential exposure to toxins.
In this month's Pet Place Podcast, Laura Bennett (Embrace Pet Insurance CEO & Co-Founder) and I discuss:
1. The risks of pet marijuana ingestion, now that the legalization of marijuana has been in effect a while.
2. If America’s opioid epidemic is impacting pets as well as people.
3. Which household product are most common in causing toxicity in our pets.
