We wanted to let you know about the Animal Poison Line, a new help line which pet owners can call to establish if a trip to see the vet is necessary should your pet eat something that you think might be poisonous.

The Animal Poison Line is run by the Veterinary Poison Information Service and works as a triage service. It serves as the first point of call for owners concerned that their pet may have been exposed to something that could potentially be poisonous.

The line is open 24 hours a day. Calls cost £20 from 8am to 8pm on Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays), and £30 outside these hours. Owners will not be advised on specific treatment but will be informed whether a trip to the vet is deemed necessary or not. For more information about the service and the VPIS please click here.
