Human medicines and pets

All homes contain medicine which may have been prescribed by a doctor or bought over the counter, and some of these are toxic to pets. Many drugs cause similar signs in both pets and humans in overdose but in some cases pets are at particular risk because of their small body size or differences in metabolism. Some drugs can cause mild, short-lived toxic effects but others can cause severe poisoning that may require several days, or occasionally even weeks, of treatment.
