This month we celebrate bringing in the Chinese New Year. February 12th marks the beginning of the Year of the Ox. The second animal of the Chinese zodiac, the ox denotes hard work, positivity and honesty.

Although most of the cases in our database concern dogs and cats, we have almost 500 cases involving cattle exposed to a wide variety of substances including drugs, pesticides, chemicals, plants and household products. Two of the most common agents we are contacted about in cattle are plants and pesticides.

The VPIS are available 24/7 to advise on cases concerning any species of animal. We have the information and resources on hand to assist with any enquiry.
