After the incident with Moses eating chocolate, and not having hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting, my dog walker, a former vet technician, gave me a list of items I should have on hand to assist in potential problems.
Of course, I hope to never need these things and vow to remain more vigilant.
Nevertheless, stuff happens.
Here’s the ASPCA list of foods toxic to dogs:
Chocolate, Coffee and Caffeine
Coconut and Coconut Oil
Grapes and Raisins
Milk and Dairy
Nuts (including almonds, macadamia, pecans, and walnuts)
Onions, Garlic, Chives
Raw/Undercooked Meat, Eggs and Bones
Salt and Salty Snack Foods
Xylitol -a sweetener in many products, including gum, candy, baked goods and toothpaste
And here’s the list of items to have in your medicine cabinet:
Benadryl 25 mg tabs
Blunt edge scissors
Dosing Syringe or turkey baster
Emergency eye wash
Hand sanitizer (for owner)
Latex gloves (for owner)
Mushers salve for paw pads
Small cold and hot packs
Thermometer- digital is fine
