MANHATTAN -- When it comes to animals and poisoning, just as with humans, time is of the essence. Following is a list of ways to help pet owners identify if their pet has been exposed to chemicals, and steps pet owners should take if the animal has ingested a poison.
Symptoms of a chemical poisoning:
- unexplained vomiting
- animal has difficulty breathing
- unusual drooling
- burns present around or in the mouth
- unusual behavior
- convulsions or unconsciousness
Steps a pet owner should take if a pet has ingested a chemical:
1. Always remember it is a race against the clock and the overall goal is to stop the poison from being absorbed into the animal's system.
2. Identify what the chemical is and how much of it the animal has been exposed to.
3. Have the original container handy and as soon as possible call your veterinarian, the local poison control center, or K-State's poison control hot line at 785-532-5679.
4. Always have syrup of ipecac and/or hydrogen peroxide on hand, but DO NOT administer it without instructions from your veterinarian or the poison control center.
5. Wait until the veterinarian or the poison control center has given you instructions before taking any medical action.
