Low Cost Spay/Neuter Information
Local Pet Adoptions
You can find many items in your cupboards, garage, garden, even your everyday purse or briefcase that could be poisonous to your pet. This provides curious cats and dogs easy access to items that can cause serious harm to them. In fact, we searched our database and found thousands of cases of pets poisoned by common household items and paid over $1.3 million toward toxicity claims for cats and dogs.
Trupanion wants to make sure you are ready when your pet needs you, so we’ve pulled together a list of essential items for your pet first aid kit. Keep the items together in a toolbox or other case and make sure they are easily accessible.
