You know how they say, "Scars add character"?

Our featured Wet Nose Wednesday Pet of the Week is a sweetheart named Diamond Deb. She's absolutely filled with character and she's got a sweet scar to prove it. Diamond Deb was picked up as a stray by animal control and when she arrived at Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter, she had a nasty wound on her back that required a number of stitches. The caring staff at YVAS ensured Deb made a swift recovery.

An 11-month-old Pit Bull Mix.

Boasting a bright white and yellow coat with expressive dark eyes, Diamond Deb was a bit on the shy side as she recovered from her wounds. At first, she refused to leave her kennel to go outside and would shy away from staff. Since her recovery, she's really come out of her shell and nowadays getting out to play and sitting on your lap are two of her favorite things.

To prepare yourself for a potential incident, always keep your vet's phone number handy, along with an after-hours clinic you can call in an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a hotline you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.

Even with all of these resources, however, the best cure for food poisoning is preventing it in the first place. To give you an idea of what human foods can be dangerous, Stacker has put together a slideshow of 30 common foods to avoid. Take a look to see if there are any that surprise you.
