Poison Control


Learn how to protect your cat from common household toxins and toxic plants.



Cats are unable to effectively metabolize over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), acetaminophen (Tylenol), and aspirin (Bufferin).

Do not give ibuprofen or acetaminophen to your cat. Consult with a veterinarian before giving your cat aspirin.

Consult with a veterinarian immediately if your cat was given over-the-counter pain medication.

Anti-freeze (ethylene glycol) is extremely toxic to cats. It tastes sweet and only a small amount can cause severe kidney disease. Immediate and intensive care is important for your cat's survival if ingestion occurs.

Rodentacides (Decon) are potentially deadly to cats if ingested. If your cat appears ill and you use these products, consult a veterinarian immediately.
