HEALTH IS WEALTH

Is it safe to inject used syringes in dogs?

No, it's not safe to inject used syringes in dogs as it can lead to various infections. Using used syringes in dogs can result in transfer of various infections ranging from skin infections to blood infection. It is essential not only for the protection of dogs but also for the well-being of an individual. Since injected medicines can sometimes affect your pet's skin, it's important to follow these simple guidelines when injecting your pet:

Use a new needle each time you administer medicine to your pet. Clean the injection site on your pet with warm soap and water. Don't inject your pet in the same spot repeatedly. You must not put needles or syringes in the waste as it can cause various needle-stick injuries that can transmit blood-borne diseases and pose a danger to everyone.

Don't throw the needle and syringe into the trash until you know if this is permissible. It is usually preferable to take the used needles and syringes to your veterinary clinic or local pharmacy for disposal.

Recently, a dog became famous all over social media for his antics after drinking alcohol. Should I let my pet consume alcohol?

Dogs should never have any type of alcohol – or even food that contains alcohol.

When you give your dog alcohol, it depresses the central nervous system, affects coordination and changes the blood chemistry, creating excess acid that damages the kidney and liver. The dog will fall into a coma and eventually die.

Whiskey and other hard liquor is probably something that a dog (or cat) won't intentionally drink, but the problem really occurs when it's combined with sweet mixers like soda or fruit juice, because that will now make the drink appealing. Let's remember, too, that some of those mixers may just include food items that are toxic to pets.

Some of the thing your dog can experience from alcohol poisoning:

Behavioural Changes

Dogs will suffer from quickly impaired mental faculties, which will result in behavioural changes. Your dog may become aggressive, depressed or try eliminating around the house.

Kidney Damage

Because alcohol is such a strong chemical poison the dog's kidney will work hard to filter it, resulting in an over-strained kidney and kidney damage.

Respiratory Problems

Alcohol depresses the activities of the mind and body. Even small amounts of alcohol can affect your dog's breathing rate quickly.

Heart Problems

Alcohol affects the heart of both humans and non-humans. Dogs ingesting even a minor amount of alcohol can experience heart murmurs and even heart attacks.

Death

It can be sudden and quick death or a slow, painful one.
