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.
