Hawaiian Hazards to Pets
There are some problems that we see on emergency frequently. Knowing the common hazards for pets is only half the battle - the other half is keeping your pet away from those hazards. Some things, like bee stings and centipede bites, are not always avoidable, but we know that pets kept in an enclosed area are much less likely to get into trouble. Most of the poison ingestions that we see at our hospital are in "free roaming" pets. The suffering that occurs when wonderful companions are exposed to dangerous things - like poisons or big trucks - truly saddens us. Please do your best to keep your pet safe.
