Marching Towards Safety: National Pet Poison Prevention Month with the ReVive HP System

March is National Pet Poison Prevention Month, a crucial time to raise awareness about the dangers in our homes for our beloved furry companions. Every year, countless pets are accidentally exposed to substances that can be toxic or even deadly to them. From common household medications like NSAIDs and acetaminophen to various chemicals and plants, the list of potential hazards is extensive.



Understanding Pet Poison Prevention


Pet poison prevention involves educating pet owners about the substances that can harm their pets and taking steps to keep these items securely stored out of reach. According to the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, human medications, household products, and even certain foods can pose a significant risk to pets if ingested.


Here are some statistics to put the issue into perspective:


  • In 2022, the APCC team assisted more than 400,000 animals from across all 50 states resulting in a nearly 5 percent increase in case volume when compared to 2021.

  • Human medications topped the list of toxins reported to the ASPCA, accounting for nearly 21% of all calls.

  • Ingestion of over-the-counter medications like NSAIDs and acetaminophen can lead to serious health issues in pets, including kidney failure and liver damage.

  • Many pet poisonings occur due to accidental ingestion of common household items such as cleaning products, chocolate, xylitol (a sugar substitute found in many products), and certain plants.


The key to preventing pet poisonings lies in awareness, responsible pet ownership, and having the right tools and resources on hand to address emergencies.

How Does Hemoperfusion Work?


Hemoperfusion is an extracorporeal therapy that involves circulating a patient's blood through a purification filter, known as an adsorption column. The ReVive HP system utilizes a dual-lumen dialysis catheter placed in a central vein for efficient blood withdrawal and return. As blood passes through the AimaLojic Blood Purification Filter Column, toxins adhere to the adsorbent material, effectively cleansing the bloodstream of harmful substances.

The ReVive HP system is a powerful tool in treating a range of severe intoxications, including overdoses of substances such as:

  • ibuprofen
