What to do if the dog is poisoned
Causes of poisoning in dogs can be very different. This is a poor-quality food, and stale food. Some owners may not notice how while walking their pet picks up a skin of sausage or a herring's head. All this can easily cause a disorder of the gastrointestinal tract in dogs.
To begin to evaluate the severity of poisoning. If your dog vomits first crop, then mucus, bile or blood, she had colic, diarrhea, anxiety periods are followed by periods of apathy - an acute poisoning. In this case, immediately show the animal to the vet, who will prescribe the right treatment depending on what your animal is poisoned. If you can not go to the vet immediately, wash the dog stomach. To induce vomiting, give the animal plenty of water or a weak solution of potassium permanganate (it should be a pale pink color). For this zaprokinte dog's head and insert between the molars syringe or the syringe with water (of course, the syringe should be without a needle). To induce vomiting, can give an animal ipecac root tincture, press your fingers on the tongue, at least, give a spoonful of mustard. Then give the animal mineral oil - it coats the lining of the stomach and prevents the absorption of most poisons. In no case do not replace petrolatum with vegetable - it has the opposite effect! And take the dog to the veterinarian at the first opportunity appeared. If the dog is not acute poisoning, you can give her an ordinary activated carbon, which is available in every medicine cabinet, at the rate of one tablet per ten kilogram of body weight. Also in case of poisoning it is very good "Enterosgel". In a couple of days the animal can be put on a diet.

In this case, the dog is an urgent need to introduce vitamin B6, based on the weight of the animal and call your veterinarian. Otherwise death occurs after 4-5 hours.
