    Default Vegas ate my roses today!! Please read...

    So I get home from work and Joe had bought me roses (for no reason) yesterday. And I just looked at my beautiful bouquet on my end table and notice 2 roses has NO petals, Vegas loves the smell of flowers!!

    I get on the phone immediately and call ASPCA that is advertised on this site and make the call to see if they are poisonous, Did You All KNOW it cost you $65.00 dollars to answer your question???? This made me furious, It is right on the recording. I get a live operator and told her I just have a quick question and told her my dog ate some roses. She ask me if I was comfortable paying $65.00 for her to talk to their vet for a consultation!!!

    I said NO I AM NOT!! I figured he ate them while I was at work, hours ago obviously,.. I came home he is fine, pee'd, pooped, ate his dinner and is being a wild man right now. I am positive he is fine and if he does get sick I will go to our animal ER.

    I am so furious that a poison control center charges $65.00 to answer a question, Am I wrong?? Call and just listen to the recording. You ALL know money is no question if he is sick, I would spend what ever it takes IF he was sick....but to simply ask a question and it is that much?? Give me a break I am very .....What do you think?

    oh my..I am shocked. I know a human Poison Control Center is no charge.. I'd be shocked that a pet one is..and sad about it
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    That is not right, it is a simple question. I wonder if poison control for kids now charges. Next time call your local ER vet clinic, I am sure they will answer a quick question for you free of charge.

    Always with me

    This is true. Sedona gave Jesse a bottle of White out and she peirced it and it went all over her crate.

    I had called the Poison control center not long ago (for humans) and it was free of charge, they answered my question, no problem at all.

    So when I called to see about Jesse what the signs were of eating any of this-- I did not think she had swallowed any but *if* she had, what should I look for so I can get her to the vet ASAP? Well, I got the same message (although there was no price on the message, just a statement regarding fees) and then they told me on the line the price. I was actually pretty shocked and said politely, "Well, if I though she actually ate some I would NOT be on the phone with you. My ER vet charges less than that, thank you very much."

    I did not want to complain, but yes I would have THOUGHT that was a volunteer service. Go figure. But if I am ever in a situation where I need to use it, I will!!!!

    I wish I had logged on sooner. Roses are 100% safe besides the fact of sharp thorns. The seed containing "hip" is used commonly to make teas, and the petals are even used in salads in some places. I've fed roses to my hermit crabs and turtles as well. The only cautionary part would be glues used to hold the rose petals in place longer or any additives used to keep them fresher longer in flower shops.

    @froggz, these roses had no thorns, and two of them have no petals!! I just took him out for his morning poo and no rose petals attached either.
