      ================== 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.
