What are your Hazardous Substances Procedures?

1 - Staff must receive annual training on the use of medications and disinfectants.


Unintentional medication overdose is the most common cause of poisoning in dogs. Pills can be over-consumed by dogs because they often taste good. Do not keep these in a place where a dog can eat them. Over-the-counter drugs should be used with care. Incorrect dosages can result in poisoning. If you suspect a dog has had access to drugs, call poison control or drive the dog to a veterinarian.


Follow label directions for proper use and storage. Products that contain bleach can safely disinfect household surfaces. Don't expose dogs to the bleach, though. Some detergents can produce similar distress in dogs. If symptoms occur, call poison control or drive the dog to a veterinarian.
