What is a Poison Control Consultation?

A poison control consultation is typically a 24-hour pet poison control hotline, which provides treatment information and advice for pet owners who have pets that have potentially consumed something poisonous. On the helpline, you will provide information about what your pet may have eaten, the quantity consumed, their symptoms, and more so that they can provide you with the best information about your next steps in caring for your pet.

In some cases, you may be able to watch your pet from home, while other times, they may recommend you take your pet into an after-hours or emergency veterinarian appointment to have them treated.

How Poison Control Consultations Work

Many pet insurance plans that offer accident-illness coverage will cover pet poison consultation fees so that you never need to hesitate when calling a pet poison consultation helpline to have your pet assessed. Pet insurance gives you peace of mind by providing you with a financial buffer and the knowledge that your pet can receive immediate, top-notch veterinary care.

Key Takeaways

  • Poison control consultations for pets are regularly offered in the form of a 24-hour pet poison control helpline.
  • Many pet insurance plans do cover the cost of pet poison control consultations so that you can have peace of mind knowing that you can quickly access important information about your pet’s health.
