Sodium fluoroacetate intoxication in dogs: case report
In the city of Maracaibo, Venezuela, a product called Guayaquil with an unknown active principle and which is offered for sale in many different markets and supermarkets; after the accidental ingestion for a dog, it produced signs described as an intoxication by sodium fluoroacetate. The documental investigation by internet, supported post-mortem the clinical diagnosis. An experimental antidótical treatment for the sodium fluoroacetate previously described, antagonized the toxic effect. The prove was developed in our laboratory to support the diagnosis. A new legislation about use and control of plaguicides is very necessary in Venezuela.
