The sooner a pet vomits, the faster the poison is removed from the animal’s system and the less toxin is absorbed, she said.
Salinger said pet owners need to think twice about anything they bring into a home with pets.
“Just like any potential poison, if it is in the house you cannot be 100 percent sure that the pet will not get into it. We recommend not bringing lilies into the house, and if you are sending flowers and you know they have pets, let the florist know to not include things like lilies or baby’s breath, which is also poisonous.”
