How to Make a Pet Poison Prevention Kit

The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center provides pet owners with great pet poison prevention advice, in addition to staffing a 24/7 hotline that helps concerned pet owners in a poison-related emergency.

Do you have a pet poison emergency kit at home?  A few simple items can be helpful if your dog or cat encounters anything toxic.

A basic kit should contain:

  • Liquid dish soap to remove substances from the fur or skin.
  • Rubber gloves to protect your hands while treating your pet.
  • Hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting (always consult with a veterinarian before using this treatment).
  • A large syringe or turkey baster to administer the hydrogen peroxide.
  • Canned pet food to help dilute toxins or give more bulk to the vomit.
  • Saline solution to flush irritants from the eyes.
  • Tweezers to remove splinters or insect stingers.
