BOTULISM

Botulism can present as an emergency, in which case no time should be lost from first noticing the warning signs to obtaining emergency veterinary help and possibly surgery.

Botulism is a condition that is related to food poisoning but generally arises from swallowing stagnant, putrid water (e.g. standing water with rotting vegetation, esp. after a long hot spell). Canals and ponds can be a danger.

We have also seen the condition in a pack of fox hounds, when the freezer was damaged without anyone noticing and the meat partially thawed a while before consumption. The meat in such situations is rarely fresh when frozen, usually coming from fallen livestock, so presents a much higher risk.

The agent of the signs and symptoms is Botulinum Toxin, from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Ascending paralysis and paralysis of smooth muscle such as bowel can occur, with fatal consequences if appropriate care cannot be obtained rapidly after onset.

Assuming the disease has not been immediately fatal, treatment using homeopathy would be our favoured option in our efforts to enhance chances of survival.
