poison control

By Alan Green and Lisa Olsen

We have often described the trouble our pets get in when consuming food or things that they shouldn't be eating. Just when we think we’ve seen it all, our wonderful critical care specialist and newest member of our team, Dr. Lisa Olsen, presents a truly remarkable case. Hint: Be careful what you bring back from vacations!

Pets will eat anything and some toxicities are more common than others. Here at Charleston Veterinary Referral Center we frequently encounter dogs that eat chocolate, ibuprofen, grapes/raisins or human medications. However, earlier this year the doctors and staff at CVRC encountered a toxin they’d never had experience with before!
