Thanks Betsy! Interesting stats. I notice that medications for Pets come more frequently these days in flavored chewable form. I personally don't like this because although I'm carefull, I think a pet would be much more likely to eat a whole bottle of a medication if it's good to eat.
By the way one of the resources that's linked to on the page Betsy sited is a list of <a href=\'http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?cls=0&cat=1300&articleid=1555\' target=\'_blank\'>Poison Center Hotlines</a>.
A good thing to print out and place near the phone.
Couldn't agree more about the chewable pet tabs. Over the years, I've had two episodes of dogs getting into closed containers of chewable Rimadyl, even though I try to watch the stuff like a hawk. AFter the first episode, I asked my vet to get the non-chewables for me (they used to make it in nonchewable form) and they were unable to do so--It may be off the market, or extremely expensive, because no one is using it these days.
