POISON EMERGENCY TREATMENT – SPEED CAN SAVE YOUR ANIMAL’S LIFE!
1. The most important is to get the animal to vomit:
1 teaspoon washing powder dissolved in a cup of lukewarm boiled water – feed with a syringe into the mouth but take care that it does not get into the animal’s lungs.
It is however critical for the animal to vomit! ENSURE THAT YOU ALWAYS HAVE A TEASPOON OF WASHING POWDER READY FOR ANY EMERGENCY!
2. After vomiting, feed 5-6 activated charcoal tablets (available at any ‘human’ pharmacy) to absorb the remaining poison.
If you do not have activated charcoal tablets, burn 4 slices of white bread to cinders (black) in the oven and roll into a ‘pellet’ with a bit of lukewarm boiled water
and give slowly but as soon as possible to absorb and neutralise the poison in the stomach. It is activated carbon.
