================== ARTICLE START ==================
Unfortunately, most of our pets don't speak our language and
that can make it difficult to provide the care that we would
like them to have at times. No time is more serious than a time
of illness and possibly one of the more serious is poisoning.
Poisoning luckily isn't something that happens often but if you
have pets that are out on their own (like many cats are), they
you will at times find them to have been exposed so materials
that can be very bad for their health.
When dealing with some varieties of poisoning time is essential
in getting your pet the care that may make the difference
between lasting harm and minor discomfort. We'll discuss a
number of different warning signs that you can be vigilant for
to alert you that what is wrong may be poisoning.
Most commonly the mouth is the entry-way for any form of poison
that you pet may come in contact with. Thankfully the warning
signs are usually rather noticeable and easy to identify. The
first is simply excess saliva. If your pet is drooling more than
usual or excessively then you may want to take a closer look at
them. If think you recognize any of these symptoms please go
ahead and verify the others and use your head.
The next symptom associated with the mouth is again rather
obvious to spot. This symptom is vomit. Often you can not only
identify the possibility of poison simply by the presence of
vomit, but you can sometimes identify the poison's source within
the vomit. Think about the situation and identify uncommon
elements in the vomit and then check for other symptoms.
If your pet is displaying a change in behavior, it may be
poisoning. The easiest, often times, to recognize a change in
are simply standing and walking ability. If you notice a
significant change in these do not hesitate to check for the
other symptoms. Some other less common "motor skills" are
sounding, gas, attitude or personality. If your pet is belching
or hacking these could be signs or symptoms of poisoning. If
your pet's sounding (barking, mewing, etc.) changes, especially
if it becomes frantic, that also could be a symptom or sign of
poisoning. Lastly, avoidance or apprehension, or any change in
interaction or personality, could be a sign of poisoning.
Please, do not hesitate to check for other symptoms.
If when you pick up your pet, the pet reacts with an unusual
sensitivity that could be a sign of poisoning. Generally, this
may be the last symptom that you check when you are verifying
signs for poisoning. Also, you can check for sensitivity by
lightly pressing on the abdomen. Take care not to apply pressure
to the ribs or too much pressure to the abdomen.
If you think that, your pets are suffering from poisoning then
contact your veterinarian immediately or the appropriate local
emergency hotline or contact. With poisoning time is of the
essence and you may want to ask your veterinarian about what
emergency action is appropriate for you to take in the event
that poisoning ever does occur.
