The Veterinary Poisons Information Service (VPIS) is the only specialist animal poisons helpline in the UK. They have been supporting vets in treating poisoned animals since 1992.
VPIS handle enquiries on all poisonings in all animals, including drugs, household products, plants, agro-chemicals and venomous bites and stings.
VPIS are delighted to announce that they are now offering services to the general public. They will be able to tell owners if their pet is at risk and if they need to go to the vet for treatment.
Calls cost £30 per enquiry and this includes any follow up calls from both owners and vets throughout the duration of the case. VIPS are open 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday currently and hope to extend these hours very soon so keep an eye on their website!
