Poisoning in Dogs and Cats
This book is based on approximately 15,000 requests for information made to the Veterinary Poisons Information Service(VPIS) in London, England and the appropriate clinical replies made thereto. It is intended for a veterinary professional however is written so that anyone can benefit from it, with occasional reference to a medical dictionary. It is important to note that the majority of useful information relates to a substance a cat or dog is known to have ingested. Thus, if you suspect your pet has ingested a toxic dose of something it is imperative you figure out what that something was. Forget the television and movie presentations of "we'll send the blood to the lab" (to discover the toxin). By the time a few months have passed by your pet will have been deceased a few months. Some hints can be culled from the symptoms associated with various poisons however one it would take a while to go through all the poisons to ID by symptom.
Reading this book should give you an idea of what substances to consider while trying to determine a possible poison. Some poisons are more specific to England such as "Yew Tree" (remember those English longbows from Robin Hood? Yew Trees) or a bite from an "adder", a snake not native to our soil. Other poisons common to the USA are ignored such as rattlesnake, brown recluse spider, black widow spiders, etc. There is an insufficient reference to plants. Among some things that should be there are: English Ivy is said to be toxic to cats but not dogs; oleander and castor beans are lethal to most mammals. Also missing are anything resembling a picture, drawing or diagram. But this lack simply adds to the dry British style.
