If you have a poison emergency you can access the ASPCA free poison information website. You can call a "for a fee" service staff (24/7) at the ASPCA at 1-888-426-4435. This is the ASPCA POISON HOT LINE. The charge for a consultation with a poison expert is $50.
Most cases can be handled by our veterinarians or by the emergency hospital veterinarians (if it is after hours for our hospital) without the need for an ASPCA consultation. The website and the hot line are a good asset for unusual poisonings that might occur.
