Pets are family. Just ask the 78 million pet owning
households in the USA. Like young two-legged family members, pets get into
things they shouldn't, including (and especially) consumer healthcare products.
In addition to accidental exposures, pet owners also intentionally treat their
pets with products meant for people without understanding the risk this can
pose to their furry friends. Indeed, exposures to people's medications and
supplements represent the most common call reported to Pet Poison Helpline, a
24/7 national animal poison control center, followed closely by consumer
products such as household cleaners, pesticides, cosmetics, and personal care
products. When pets are exposed to consumer products, panicked pet owners will
contact manufacturers wanting to know if their pet is in danger of poisoning.
Additionally, when pets fall ill, pet owners may conclude that consumer
products are the cause and contact manufacturers demanding answers and monetary
compensation. Join us to learn about best practice options for managing pet
