📖 e-library | Dr. Fukuchi's pet poisoning e-library


For pets living with people, there are countless substances that are harmful to humans, even if they are low in toxicity. There are few detailed records of the toxic doses of these substances to animals, and even when they do exist, they are outdated or have small numbers. In this course, we will select documents with as high a level of scientific evidence as possible regarding the safety of these substances for pets, mainly dogs and cats, and explain the points that clinical veterinarians should keep in mind. Substances that cause poisoning and substances that cause blockages are listed separately. ■Causative substance: Enter the generic name used in Japan and the name used in papers, etc. ■Clinical signs: Describe any typical symptoms. For cases with few reports, case reports may be referred to. ■Toxic amount Provide as much detail as possible. If available, include the no observed effect level (NOAEL), toxic dose, and lethal dose. ■Animal species/dog breeds that are prone to poisoning Some dog breeds, such as onion poisoning, exhibit strong clinical signs, so they will be listed in relevant cases.  ■Emesis: This is important in decontamination, but vomiting such as gasoline can cause serious aspiration pneumonia. Describe if contraindicated. ■Treatment: Describe the policies generally followed. For details, please refer to books, references, etc. ■Things to be aware of: This is written when there is something that should be enlightened to the owner. ■Reference: For veterinary medicine and medical science, we use documents registered on Google Scholar or materials submitted to PMDA. For information on plant classification, etc., I sometimes refer to general websites. The "Foreign substances" section mainly deals with substances that are found in people's living environments and are often accidentally ingested, causing blockages.
