Did Your Dog or Cat Eat Something Poisonous?

You may be surprised what is completely harmless for humans to eat may be lethal if it is ingested by your 4-legged child.  Things like apple seeds, avocados, candy (especially chocolate), coffee, and even garlic as well as certain types of nuts may be hazardous to your pet’s health.  If you even suspect that your dog or cat has raided the pantry or wolfed down a quantity of potentially dangerous food you need to take action quickly.

Fortunately there is a 24 hour pet poison hotline that is always available to you.  The sooner a pet poisoning is diagnosed the easier and less expensive it is to treat your pet.  The hotline is toll free every minute of the day wherever you are in the United States by calling (855) 764-7661.  They have the ability to help every poisoned pet 24 hours a day. Their knowledge and expertise of pet poisons will put your mind at ease when dealing with a potential emergency.

Speaking of Cats.

Let’s talk about cat sitting.  When you think of cats you often think…well they’re so independent you just put out the food, the water and the clean litter box - and you may leave them alone for days which you would never consider doing with a dog.  It seems that way sometimes when your cat ignores you doesn’t it?

The truth is, studies show that cats are much more comfortable in their own familiar surroundings.  When you go on vacation DO NOT leave your cat at home unattended.  Critter Sitters, serving the Fox Valley in Western Suburban Chicagoland, will visit your home and care for all of cats’ needs such as feeding, watering, and cleaning the litter box.  We will NEVER let your cats out of the house.

The next time you travel for a couple of days or a couple of weeks - call Sandy at Critter Sitters to arrange for pet sitting services.  Her phone number is (630) 844-9554.  Or visit her online for a full list of services at
