A sweet and beefy Indiana dog can be part of your family [VIDEO]
Allow us to introduce you to this week pet of the week of the Vanderburgh Humane Society.
Shop here! I am a 3 year old terrier mix and long time resident of VHS. If you couldn’t tell already, I’m a very sweet and strong boy. Sometimes I underestimate my own toughness, so watch out toddlers – I’m going to bulldoze you. I generally like everyone I meet and play well with other dogs. I am very into treats and I LOVE tummy massages and car rides. I am a heartworm carrier, but VHS will treat me (at no additional cost to you) once I am adopted and can recover in a home. Come and meet me, I promise you will immediately fall in love with my clumsy side! My adoption fee is $25 through the Bissel Foundation and includes my spay, microchip, and heartworm treatment.

WATCH: Here are 30 toxic foods for dogs
To prepare for a potential incident, always keep your vet’s phone number handy, as well as an after-hours clinic you can call in case of an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a helpline that you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.
Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is to prevent it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
