Pet Toxicity Reference
A handy dandy guide of crowd-sourced info of what may be toxic to your dog or cat!
PupTox was created by Eric Salerno, a programmer, not a veterinarian. It is meant as a handy source of crowd-sourced information only and not as a definitive tool for treating symptoms of toxic poisoning. It is by no means, authoritative, exhaustive, or complete. Always contact your veterinarian, the ASPCA, or Pet Poison Helpline in case of emergency. More info at http://www.putpox.com/
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is any invalid or erroneous information. Don't forget to include a source if you are contending anything. I accommodate all corrective attribution or removal with proof.
The idea of this app was originally so I would always have a handy guide to what was toxic to my two dogs; a Siberian Husky named Loki and an Australian Kelpie named Mistress. My wife was shopping for plants at a local nursery and said it would be handy to have an app that would show what flowers we could buy. As it turns out, all the plants that were currently in front of our house were dog-toxic! This application is Copyright 2009-2012 Salerno Labs LLC. All Rights Reserved. Enjoy!
Information for this app has been gathered from the internet and from common knowledge. While crowd-sourced information can sometimes be dubious (we recognize the nature of sites like wikipedia), strong efforts are made to verify data confidence with multiple crowd-based websites before anything is included in this list.
