Lead poisoning in your pet. Uncommon but it can happen.
Although the highest number of lead poisoning cases are seen during the warmer months of the year, there are a wide variety of sources of lead. Older buildings and homes are common sources of lead poisonings, as they can be riddled with lead dust or chips from lead paint. Lead was allowed to be in paint until 1978. This is a rarely seen condition at our hospital but always on the list when certain symptoms are exhibited by animals that are presented ill. read more

Below is a link to a story about a herding dog that got intoxicated (poisoned) by ivermectin inadvertently through eating feces from sheep. The sheep had been recently dewormed with ivermectin and this dog could not handle the large amount of ivermectin still present in the stool. The dog survived but the lesson here is secondary poisonings can occur, such as this. One common way we see it here at the hospital is rat poison that is intended for mice or squirrels then the dog eats the dead rodent he/she finds and then succumbs to the same toxin that took out the mouse. read more
