The city of Newnan Animal Warden wants to remind all pet parents of the poisons lurking around their home. Many don’t realize that some of the biggest culprits are sitting right on their own nightstands.

In 2007, the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center received 89,000 calls related to pets ingesting over-the-counter and prescription medications. To help you prevent an accident from happening, our experts have created a list of the top 10 human medications that most often poison our furry friends -- NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen or naproxen, antidepressants, acetaminophen, methylphenidate (for ADHD), fluorouracil, isoniazid, pseudoephedrine, anti-diabetics, vitamin D derivatives and baclofen. If you suspect your pet has ingested any of the following items, call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center’s 24-hour hotline at 1-888-426-4435.
