GIVE WATER TO TAKE THE DOSE OF LEGIA TO BE DISSOLVED, AND GO TO THE VETERINARY.

IF THE DOG IS INJURED, YOU WILL NOT NEED TO GET A NEW ONE AND DO NOT WALK LEAVING RISKFUL THINGS FOR YOUR DOG, OR FOR OTHERS.

There are hundreds of veterinarians in the phone book at this time and you should have had a response from a professional. This is urgent and every second that passes is very important.

Imagine if you put a plate with poisoned chocolates on the floor and my 5 month old baby finds it! ! !

That's how accidents happen.

Lye is a weaker acid than what exists in the stomach, so nothing will happen there. The problem comes from the areas where it has happened that acids do not resist: mouth, esophagus. Here there may be chemical burns that could become infected.

Take it to the veterinarian as soon as possible, and above all, DON'T MAKE IT VOMIT, because the bleach would burn again when you left.

Thank you very much at 2. Well yes, Diana, you don't know what a bug it is. And I can not imagine if it was small (it is an American stafford), because if being big it sneaks everywhere imagine being small, lol.

Patricia the egg white I have given it raw, has not vomited. Is that when these things happen to me I get sooo nervous, jiji, I guess normal.

Thank you very much again, kisses

It is better that it does not return because the bad thing about bleach is that it burns and when it returns it will pass through the entire digestive tract again, the egg white will surely go well because it will protect the stomach walls.

My dog ​​one day ate a lot of treats that the children left within their reach and became very bad (that they will do them) did not stop vomiting and increasingly green, is that if you eat something toxic you get scared and try to remedy , but I didn't expect him to get like this because of some sweets.
So you never know where the danger is, for example, xylitol is deadly to them, with the content of two xylitol gum a 20 kg dog. He dies in a few hours.
One day we have to make a post with the weirdest things our hairy ones have swallowed.
Greetings.

Tana has babies> 24 Jan

I present to you Tana, a staffordshire bull terrier of 9 months.

Its owner called us a few days ago worried because Tana had licked bleach. Tana took advantage of an oversight from her owner to enter the bathroom and lick the shower, where she had left bleach to disinfect.

What problems could Tana cause the ingestion of bleach?

At first, Tana's injuries could be caused by direct contact with the irritating product: mouth ulcers, dysphagia, salivation, protrusion of the tongue, eye lesions if bleach had entered her eyes. In addition, it was also necessary to control that Tana did not present vomiting, diarrhea or that she was very decayed.

On the phone the owner of Tana told us that she was happy as always, and that she did not present any of these symptoms. So he was advised to give a good amount of water and some milk to try to dilute the product and avoid major injuries.

We do not recommend or cause vomiting or gastric lavage, as both can make symptoms worse and even cause a stomach perforation. Neither administering active carbon is useful with these corrosive products, so we didn't give it to them either.

We agreed that he would go to the clinic if there were any symptoms or his owner saw something abnormal in Tana's attitude.

How has Tana evolved?

A few days after the incident, the owner of Tana came with her to see us because she had begun to vomit. After ingesting a corrosive product there is a risk of stomach ulcers, intestinal lesions and even kidney problems.

After fully exploring Tana, the only thing that was appreciated was a slight discomfort to abdominal palpation. To ensure that everything was not getting complicated with an organic problem, it was decided to do a blood test.

A slight increase in creatinine was observed in the analysis (a parameter that, among other things, determines if there can be a kidney problem). The rest of the analysis was normal, including urea, the other parameter we used to determine the functionality of the kidney.

Elevated creatinine, maximum level 1.5mg / dl

As the general appearance of Tana was normal, it was decided to subcutaneously administer medication to control vomiting, antibiotic and gastric protector. We agreed to monitor her condition and creatinine levels in 48 hours if Tana was well, or the next day if she continued to show symptoms, since the next step if she did not improve would be to enter it with intravenous serum.

As Tana stopped vomiting after medicating her, after 2 days we saw her again. He looked completely normal, had no abdominal pain and fortunately creatinine had normalized.

normalized creatinine below 1.5mg / dl

For now, he will continue for a few days with antibiotic and stomach protective treatment by mouth, to make sure that no problem appears again.

I hope that Tana does not drink any toxic products again and that she recovers completely soon.

Intoxication symptoms

Symptoms may vary depending on the substance ingested in each case., but there are general signs that we can easily identify as: severe abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, tremor, paralysis and seizures, unconsciousness, respiratory problems, etc.

The attitude of the owner before an intoxication will be fundamental. You must remain calm and seek, in the first place, what the animal has been able to ingest. If you have a label, you should read it to know what it is. Secondly, you should call the veterinarian to explain what happened and, in many cases, you can give certain indications to stabilize the animal while transferring it to the nearest clinic or hospital:

- In case the toxic is inhaled (fumes, vapors ...) it is best to take our animal to the street to give it air.

- In the event that the poisoning is by contact (pipettes not appropriate to their species or weight, plants ...) it will be indicated to give a bath to our pet.

- In the event that the poison is ingested, it may be necessary to induce vomiting to prevent further absorption. This can only be done in animals that are conscious and without seizures or have not vomited by themselves. We should not do so in case of corrosive toxins, since they will generate damage to the esophagus when leaving. It must have been less than two hours since ingestion. For this, salt water or hydrogen peroxide can be administered to the animal but there is a certain risk that, except in cases of extreme urgency in which the veterinarian is more than two hours away, it will be better for qualified personnel.

It is important to emphasize that any of these measures vary greatly depending on the toxic cause of the damage, so they cannot be applied if the cause of the poisoning is unknown. Whatever the type and degree of poisoning, these practices should be done on the way to the veterinarian, that is, they are tips to act quickly and avoid aggravating the condition, but there areto go to a specialist without fail.

How to avoid possible poisoning or poisoning

In the street we must take our dog always tied and under supervision.

At home, we must leave out of the reach of our pets some commonly used products such as:

  • Detergents and Softeners: detergents can be toxic if swallowed but softeners can even cause death.
  • Clothes bleaches, such as lavandina and chlorine compounds, are very toxic to dogs.
  • Bleach, ammonia, liquids to uncover pipes, detergents for bathrooms, and dishwashing detergents. They can also cause injury to the plantar pads when walking on wet floors with these products.
  • Mothballs are extremely dangerous when ingested.
  • Some mouthwashes contain boric acid, highly toxic.
  • Poisons against slugs and snails, rodenticides and pesticides are deadly unless you go to a veterinary center extremely quickly.
  • Garden plants must be chosen responsibly, since some can be toxic not only for the dog, but also for children. Some plants toxic to dogs are: tomato, spinach, azalea, autumn saffron, avocado (leaves), oleander, actea, dulcamara, belladonna, foxglove, hemlock, aquatic hemlock, yew, castor and lily of the valley.
  • It is necessary to avoid that the dog touches corpses of animals like rodents, or doves because they could have ingested some poison.

Nor should we forget about medications. Many owners administer drugs formulated for humans to their pets because, because they work for them, they think they will also solve any symptoms that their pets present.

It is true that many of these medications can be used in animals, but the doses vary greatly from people to animals, and not all of them are well tolerated, so any medication should always be administered under veterinary supervision.

Drugs such as aspirin, paracetamol, ibuprofen, naproxen, antidepressants, muscle relaxants, antihistamines ... can cause serious digestive or liver problems in dogs and cats and even some, can be fatal.

Therefore, as responsible owners we must always be attentive to our pets, not leaving cleaning agents, insecticides ... at your fingertips at home, choosing plants that are not toxic to them and we will never administer medications without first consulting a veterinarian. During the walk, it is preferable to take our dog well tied or, in case of having a specific area to release it and that can exercise, we will be aware of them since, in an oversight, they can ingest some substance that endangers their wellness.

How dangerous is bleach?

The first thing to keep in mind is that you must be calm. If we are nervous, the dog will notice, and it could be worse. But, yes, you have to act fast. Lye is a corrosive substance that can seriously affect the esophagus, causing burns, and a series of symptoms that are: stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing and seizures. Therefore it is essential that, if we suspect that you have ingested, even if only a little, let's go to the veterinarian.

What to do if you have symptoms?

If the animal already has any of these symptoms, in no case should it cause vomiting. What we should do is, if you are conscious and can swallow well, it is wash your mouth with water and give 30ml of milk for every 3kg of weight. Milk will reduce the acid in the lye present in the stomach, so it will make you feel better.

In case you are not aware, you should not be given anything, as it could suffocate. Anyway, and as we said before, bleach can cause internal burns, so even if we see it improve, we must go to the vet to examine him and do a stomach wash. Only in this way can he recover fully and return to normal life.
