We’re excited and honoured to feature South Africa’s second largest independent animal welfare organisation on PetlifeSA for one year, starting July 2019.
What To Do If You Suspect Your Pet Has Been Poisoned
The symptoms of a poisoned pet depend on the type of poison he or she was exposed to.
Occasionally symptoms of poisoning show up right away, but sometimes the damage can take months to appear. The average time it takes for symptoms of poisoning to show up, however, is three to four days.
SIGNS OF PET POISONING MAY INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
- Difficulty breathing
- Excessive salivation
- Vacant eyes
- Loss of coordination
- Blood in the stool
- Loss of appetite
- Irregular heartbeat
- Inability to urinate
Contact your veterinarian immediately if you suspect your pet has been exposed to anything that could be poisonous – do not wait until it’s too late!
