How to protect your dog from poisoning: advice from a dog handler

Substances and things that people use on a daily basis can be harmful to dogs. In order for the pet not to be poisoned, it is necessary to carefully monitor its behavior and protect it from potential sources of the threat of poisoning. This was announced on Sunday, May 15, by the President of the Russian Cynological Federation Vladimir Golubev.

Stale food

Expired food is the most obvious likely cause of poisoning, quotes RIA Novosti expert. Also, fried, spicy, smoked foods and sweets can become a cause of disruption of the gastrointestinal tract. This food should not be given to a dog. In order to avoid health troubles, you need to make sure that the animal does not pick up anything on the street while walking.


Keep your first aid kit out of your dog’s reach. Medicines containing narcotic components, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, antidepressants, painkillers and analgesics can seriously harm the animal.

Household chemicals

Such funds in the house should be well hidden. In addition, keep away agricultural fertilizers, adhesives, solvents, paints, insect and rodent control products.


Even the most seemingly harmless of them can be toxic, so cut flowers and potted plants should be removed in places inaccessible to the pet. A dog that has eaten a poisonous plant may experience weakness, depression, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, and even convulsions.
