The Pet Poison Hotline created this list of items, presented in order of frequency, that caused the most emergency calls in 2013.
4. Over-the-counter cough, cold and allergy medications: Those that contain acetaminophen or decongestants, such as pseudeophedrine or phenyleprhrine, are particularly toxic.
5. Rodenticides (mouse poison): These may cause internal bleeding (brodifacoum, bromadiolone, etc.) or brain swelling (bromethalin), even in small amounts.
6. Grapes and Raisins: These harmless human foods cause kidney damage in dogs.
Tune in tomorrow for Part 3 – the last four toxins on the list.
