[RC] animals and rat poison - A. Perez

PLEASE!  If you ever suspect that your pet has gotten into rat
poison, get it to the vet immediately: don't 'keep and eye on it
for a few days': the most common rat poison is Worfan (sp?)
which causes internal hemoraging.  Large does of vitamin K, IF
GIVEN IN TIME, can save a pets life - but it has to be given

I just lost my beloved Australian shepherd (Harley = Harley
Barley Pupily Pie = Harley-Q-Buster Pup = Buddy Boy....) on
Friday.  What we thought was belly bloating due to indigestion
turned out to be massive hemoraging due to a ruptured tumor. 
Once in surgery, they saw the cancer had infiltrated the liver,
and there was no hope.   We are heart-broken: he was a
tremendous dog.   Had we waited another day (which I almost did)
he would have bled to death - not a nice way to go.

Please - if you love your dog, don't hesitate to get to a vet!
