Is your Pup in Danger?

If your Doctor told you that there was a deadly virus going around that would attack your intestines, causing you uncontrolled vomiting, hemorrhagic diarrhoea and intense pain that might kill you – you’d be worried wouldn’t you?

Bess's fight for life

Bess2

When Bess arrived at the Leeton Vets, she was very cold, pale & lethargic. Her owners suspected that she had eaten some rat bait but they were not sure. Rat bait acts as an anticoagulant (prevents the blood from clotting) by depleting the body's supply of vitamin K. Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin which is essential in the formation of clotting agents in the blood stream. It can take anything from 1-5 days after ingestion to begin to see the signs of intoxication. We wanted to run a blood test that can tell us if her blood had lost its clotting factors but she was so cold and her blood pressure was so low, that we couldn’t draw blood from her veins to perform any tests.
