Have you heard of Zinc Toxicity?




✨ Zinc toxicity can manifest with symptoms ranging from GI irritation to life-threatening hemolytic anemia

✨This condition results from ingestion of zinc containing compounds; the most commonly of which is ingestion of pennies produced after 1982

✨Seek veterinary care immediately if your pet ingests pennies as their prognosis could be improved by the rapid removal of these objects either by scoping or surgery while they are still in the pet’s stomach
