Tips to Prevent Pet Poisoning:
The Georgia Poison Center (GPC) is the official statewide resource for the provision of protocol-driven treatment and prevention advice for animal bites and rabies exposures. This service is provided in association with the Georgia Department of Human Resources, Division of Public Health, Epidemiology and Prevention Branch. The staff at the Center provides 24-hour advice regarding the assessment of animal bites in terms of provocation, vaccination status, and potential for rabies transmission. If further treatment is necessary, the bite victim is referred to the closest medical facility maintaining a stock of the rabies prophylaxis series, or their usual medical care provider.
