Halloween is right around the corner and your house may already be filled with all sorts of assorted candy and treats. Unfortunately, many of these delicious treats are toxic to our pets. Many other common poison risks for our pets are all around our homes, often without us even being aware of the dangers.

Dr. Renee Schmid is a Diplomate of the American Board of Toxicology and a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Toxicology. She works with the Pet Poison Hotline as a Senior Veterinary Toxicologist. She is an expert in the field of veterinary toxicology and the perfect person to walk listeners through the various risks and, just as importantly, what to do if our pets ingest something toxic.
