Many household plants and products can be dangerous to cats. The Cat Fanciers’ Association provides a brochure on common house plants which are available at the clinic. Rodent poisons, ant and cockroach poisons, slug bait, traditional antifreeze, lead paint flakes, some insecticides, fungicides, fertilizers, and detergents are a few of the products that can produce serious toxic problems and possibly death. Keep all such products safely away from pets as well as children. The Pet Poison Helpline phone number is 1-800-213-6680. There is a charge for this service.
