Keywords:Poisoning, Aldicarb, Pesticides, Dogs, Cats
AbstractA retrospective evaluation (1999 to 2004) of all 1,875 necropsies was performed at one Veterinary Pathology Service in Brazil with the aim of characterizing the cases of fatal poisonings in dogs and cats. During this period, 261 (13.9%) cases of dog or cat poisoning were identified. For all animals the exposures were of acute nature, caused by a single substance, occurred by ingestion and the most them were of intentional nature. The main agent was aldicarb responsible for 88.6% of the intoxications in dogs and 95.0% in cats. Other agents were anticoagulants (10.0% in dogs and 0.8% in cats), sodium monofluoracetate (1.4% in dogs) and no specified organic solvent (4.2% in cats).
