National Poison Prevention Week
March 14-20, 2010 
National Poison Prevention Week aims to educate the public on how to prevent accidental poisonings. You will no doubt see a lot of information addressing how to keep humans safe from poisonous substances.  Pet Poison Helpline wants to be sure that our pet friends are not forgotten when the important topic of poison prevention is discussed.  Poison Helpline experts are available to discuss the following topics:
*  Precautionary steps to help protect our pet friends from accidental poisonings
*  Items that may be safe for humans, but can be quite dangerous to pets, like macadamia nuts, grapes, raisins, and common household products
Human medicines that are the dangerous when consumed by pets
*  Easy tips to 'pet proof' your home

Contact Pet Poison Helpline for more information about keeping pets safe from poison, or to set up a time to speak with one of their experts.
