March Is Pet Poison Awareness Month

Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital

Dr. Karri McCreary, co-owner of the Greenville Animal Hospital, contemplates March as "Pet Poison Awareness Month."  Karri says xylitol, a chemical contained in chewing gum, is extremely poisonous for dogs, and lillies, a popular spring and Easter plant, is very hazardous to cats.  We also discuss the advisability of pet health insurance, including the online pet-health-insurance company Pawp.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
