Dealing with poisoned pets

  • Inducing vomiting

    One common “error” we see among veterinarians is not knowing when not to induce emesis. Remember, if the patient is already symptomatic (i.e., ataxic, depressed, seizuring, etc.), emesis-induction is likely too late (but check with a poison control first, as sometimes gastric lavage is still recommended). When in doubt, check with Pet Poison Helpline® to make sure it’s warranted before you reach for that bottle of apomorphine.
