General information on Food Poisoning
Food poisoning is common, as dogs are known to scavenge and come into contact with decomposing foods, carrion, animal manure and other noxious substances.
Symptoms of Food Poisoning
The symptoms of food poisoning begin with vomiting and pain in the abdomen. They are followed in severe cases by diarrhea (often bloody) in two to six hours. If the problem is complicated by bacterial infection, shock may develop. Mild cases recover in a day or two.
Treatments for Food Poisoning
Induce vomiting. [See HOW TO INDUCE VOMITING in Pet tips]. Afterward, coat the intestines to delay or prevent absorbtion. The condition may require antibiotics.
