When her cat Rosita accidentally ingested medicine meant for her dog, BluePearl veterinary technician Amanda Fernandez did what 2,999,999 people had done before her: She called the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center. “Thankfully, prompt medical attention and the guidance of APCC’s knowledgeable staff allowed Rosi to make a full recovery with ‘nary a hitch in her giddy-up,’ Amanda says.” Amanda and Rosi learned that they were APCC’s 3 millionth case when their call was answered, and they want to say, “thank you to the entire staff at APCC for doing what you do—all day, all night; every day, every night, without fail.” If you need to reach the Animal Poison Control Center, call (888) 426-4435. And by the way, most BluePearl hospitals also are open around the clock. Our veterinarians are experts on many toxic substances that pets get into, but we sometimes call the poison control hotline also. It's a great resource.
