Keep your animals away from that mould!
Mycotoxins are produced by fungi found on items that are going mouldy.
Mouldy cheese, nuts, bread, hay, compost and silage are some of the places mycotoxins can be found. There are many others.
This puts animals at risk of mycotoxicosis. Horses, cattle small mammals, dogs and cats are just a few.
Signs of mycotoxicosis include:
**Staggering/appearing uncoordinated when walking
**Vomiting (not horses)
**Increased body temperature so usually above 39.2C
**Left untreated the animal could die
How to help prevent it mycotoxicosis
** Always check hay and silage when fed to horses, cattle and others that eat it
**Remove uneaten hay, especially when outside
** Keep a tight lid on bins to prevent your dog or wild animals raiding it as it’s a potential source of mould - one of the biggest reasons we see this toxicity
** Use a muzzle on dogs who scavenge a lot of you are in a high risk area, such as a city where people may drop food on the floor that can decay
** fence off your compost heap to prevent your dogs sniffing around and potentially ingesting fungal spores
**Double check all foods and treats before eating them. If in doubt about their freshness, throw them away
If this happens use all the tips I teach you on how to manage a seizure, KEEP AN EYE ON THE BODY TEMPERATURE!! And get immediate vet help...
