Emergency & First Aid

FIRST AID POISONED DOG OR CAT

3 types of poison used in Dahab, sometimes in combination:

  • Strychnine
  • Rat poison (Warfarin)
  • Organophosphate

Only make the dog vomit if you see the dog actually eating something poisoned.
If you don’t see it or if the dog has convulsions don’t try to make it vomit because it can get into its lungs and cause pneumonia.

How to make a dog vomit:
give it salt water
or: put a little salt on its tongue, not too much, this can be dangerous for the dog
or: mustard
