Veterinary Highlights: Top Toxin Calls By State

What is the top toxin in your state? 

ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center put together a map reflecting trends in the types of calls from different states.

When I saw this map I found it quite interesting that there actually even be a trend such as this in the first place. Some of that seems to make sense, some of that is quite curious. I wish they also made an actual graph, showing top ten most common calls to compare things and see a more comprehensive pattern.

Are you seeing why the statistics would turn out this way? For your state or the others as well?

You can download a pdf of the map here.
