Barley in the hospital / Sally Haddock DVMPets getting into human medications in the home is one of the top causes of poisonings. Other common poisonings include foods toxic to pets and home and yard chemicals.

This is a case report of Barley the Labrador who experienced a life-threatening toxicity.

Thankfully his human is a veterinarian who was up on the case (and up every night) to help Barley recover from this month-long ordeal.
