Embrace Launches Pet Poison Resource Center



Published:

Marking National Poison Prevention Week (March 18-24, 2012), Embrace Pet Insurance of Beachwood, Ohio, today launched a pet poison resource center on its website. The resource is intended to reduce the number of pets accidentally poisoned and the veterinary costs associated with pet poisonings.

“It’s not unusual to hear pet owners joke about their pets eating everything in sight, but pet poisoning is a serious problem,” said Laura Bennett, CEO and co-founder of Embrace. “Embrace receives many claims every year relating to poisoning. By educating pet parents about preventative steps in the home and in their lives, I really believe we can make serious progress in reducing the emotional trauma and expense associated with pet poisonings.”

The resource center breaks down poisonous substances into nine categories: human food, household chemicals, human medication, pet medication, animal toxins common poisonous plants, outdoors, malicious poisoning and other.

It also offers suggestions on ways pet owners can prevent poisonings and identify symptoms, as well as what they should do if they suspect their pet has been poisoned.

“Any pet parent who goes through an accidental pet poisoning experiences the emotional distress and unexpectedly high costs of these incidents,” Bennett said. “We created the pet center to educate our insured pet parents on the dangers of everyday household items so we can help prevent the pain and suffering from such accidental poisonings.”
