Your dog ate what?! Managing pet exposures to healthcare products
Pets are family. Just ask the 78 million pet owning households in the USA. Like young two-legged family members, pets get into things they shouldn't, including (and especially) consumer healthcare products. In addition to accidental exposures, pet owners also intentionally treat their pets with products meant for people without understanding the risk this can pose to their furry friends. Indeed, exposures to people's medications and supplements represent the most common call reported to Pet Poison Helpline, a 24/7 national animal poison control center, followed closely by consumer products such as household cleaners, pesticides, cosmetics, and personal care products. When pets are exposed to consumer products, panicked pet owners will contact manufacturers wanting to know if their pet is in danger of poisoning. Additionally, when pets fall ill, pet owners may conclude that consumer products are the cause and contact manufacturers demanding answers and monetary compensation.
