Veterinary Poisons Information Service

We regularly get phone calls from worried owners whose pets have eaten something they shouldn't. If we need advice about the case, we contact the Veterinary Poisons Information Service, a call centre run by a team of veterinary poisons specialists who give detailed advice tailored to your pets weight and the amount of poison ingested.

The VPIS have also now set up a public helpline where owners can get advice about what their pet has eaten and whether urgent treatment is needed.

Please be aware that this number is for genuine emergencies, only not general advice. As your call is put through to a highly trained poisons specialist there is a charge for calls (approx £20-£30 depending on time of day).
