Human Prescription Drugs Leads Pet Toxins List

Prescription drugs for humans topped the ASPCA’s report on the top 10 pet poisons in 2013, ranked by call volume to the organization’s Animal Poison Control Center. Insecticides took second place, followed by over-the-counter drugs for humans; household products; human food (such as onions, garlic, grapes and the sugar substitute xylitol); veterinary products and drugs; chocolate; mouse and rat poison; plants and lawn and garden products. Additional items appeared on a list compiled by Trupanion, which noted the dangers of caffeine, antifreeze, yeast dough and other things found around the home.
