Lilies are poisonous for our dogs, cats and horses. Lilies can cause kidney failure in cats.

Some common signs to watch for that may indicate poisoning are: excessive drooling, nausea, vomiting, abnormal heart rate, weakness, collapse, dialed pupils, seizures, and tremors. Contact a veterinarian immediately if your pet may have ingested any plant and is not acting normal. We are open 24/7 - (928) 778-1990. #poisonousplants #petpoisons #petemergency #prescottpetemergency #prescottpetER

Oleander is extremely toxic to our pets. If it is ingested it can cause severe vomiting, slow the heart rate and possible even cause death.

Contact a veterinarian immediately if your pet may have ingested any plant and is not acting normal. We are open 24/7 - (928) 778-1990. #poisonousplants #petpoisons #petemergency #prescottpetemergency #prescottpetER

Foxglove makes a beautiful addition to our planters during this time of year, but it is poisonous for our dogs, cats and horses. Foxglove is extremely toxic is small quantities.

Ingesting foxglove can cause excessive drooling, nausea, vomiting, abnormal heart rate, weakness, collapse, dialed pupils, seizures, and tremors. Contact a veterinarian immediately if your pet may have ingested any plant and is not acting normal. We are open 24/7 - (928) 778-1990. #poisonousplants #petpoisons #petemergency #prescottpetemergency #prescottpetER

Many pets that suffer from severe dental disease will continue eating even though it is painful. Pets are great at hiding their symptoms! While dental disease is very important to address with your routine veterinarian, if your pet stops eating this may be a sign of some other type of illness and should be evaluated right away. We are open 24/7 for all pet emergencies!

Routine dental care is important for our pets, but do you know what a true dental emergency is? Facial or oral swelling, a fractured tooth, oral trauma (bone fractures, lacerations, puncture wounds), bleeding and excessive drooling should always be addressed immediately.

When gearing up to take your pets on the road with you, take some time to download The Red Cross Pet First Aid app and pack a first aid kit. It is best to be prepared in case immediate help is far away.

The safest way for your dog to travel in the car is secured in the back seat. It is best to anchor a crate or carrier to the vehicle using a seat belt or other secure means. If you do not have a crate for your dog there are options for dog restraints, such as harnesses that work with seat belts and dividers to keep them in the back seat. #pettravel #travelingpets #petemergency #prescottpetemergency #prescottpetER

If you are traveling with your pet make sure they are never left alone in the car. Although it is not hot outside right now, temperatures as low as 70 degrees outside can rapidly climb to over 100 degrees inside the car. Pets left in cars with high temperatures can suffer organ damage and even death. In cold weather, a car can act as a refrigerator and hold in the cold air, causing pets to freeze to death. #pettravel #travelingpets #petemergency #prescottpetemergency #prescottpetER
