What causes food poisoning?
What seems to be an ordinary food product for us could be really unhealthy for our pets. Canines suffer from food poisoning when they consume something that is toxic to them. It could be alcohol, chemicals, some fruits and vegetables, fecal matter or anything from the garbage trash which is contaminated or spoilt. However, the symptoms of food poisoning, which usually do not take much time to appear, depends upon what your pooch has eaten and in what quantity, its age, breed, and health.
However, the most common symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, increased drooling, loss of appetite, lethargy, shivering uncontrollably, whimpering in pain and changes in behaviour such as sudden aggression. Some dogs also show neurological signs including a lack of coordination, tremors, and even seizures.
What to do if you suspect your dog has food poisoning?
Many pet parents believe that inducing vomiting is the best way to prevent food poisoning from worsening and getting the toxin substance out of their dog’s body. However, this also has the risk of choking and causing dehydration until and unless the pet has been drinking plenty of water. It’s the best that you contact your veterinarian and seek advice.
