Poisonous Foods & Plants

If you suspect that your Kerry has ingested a poisonous plant, you need to act fast. Symptoms range from indigestion, irritation of the mouth, abnormal
thirst, drowsiness, depression (or excitement), drooling, difficulty breathing, to staggering, loss of coordination, tremors, seizures, collapse, asphyxiation,
heart failure, and possible death.

It goes without saying that you need to contact a veterinarian immediately. But what if you can’t reach a vet? Fortunately, the National Animal Poison
Control Center (NAPCC) provides a 24-hour emergency hotline. Keep these numbers handy:

800-548-2423
(You are charged a flat fee of $30.)

900-680-0000
(You are charged $2.95 a minute up to $30.)

If the dog is alert, you may be asked to induce vomiting. However, in some poisoning cases, it is not recommended. That’s why you need prompt veterinary
help.
