GeorgiePoor Georgie soon came to regret eating a packet of yoghurt covered raisins. Grapes, raisins, currants and sultanas can cause renal failure in dogs and cats. Thankfully her owner rang the clinic as soon as this was discovered. Vomiting was induced, charcoal administered and Georgie was kept on intravenous fluids for 48 hours to offset the potential harm the raisins might have caused. We are delighted to say that Georgie is fit and well, and has not suffered any ill effects.This incident acts as a salient reminder that there are many things at home and in the garden that may seem harmless to you and I but can be toxic to our pets. Did you know that lilies can cause renal failure in cats? And don’t forget that certain garden products such as slug bait can be fatal on ingestion.
