Urgent News: This drug is fatal if ingested!!

  

Fluorouracil, which is also called 5FU, is a chemotherapy drug that is given as a treatment for some types of cancer.           

5FU is available as: a colorless fluid and/or a cream (Efudix®) which is used to treat certain types of skin cancer. 

Fluorouracil - an anti-cancer drug is used topically to treat minor skin cancers and solar keratitis in humans. It has proven to be rapidly fatal to dogs, causing severe vomiting, seizures and cardiac arrest even in those who’ve chewed on discarded cotton swabs used to apply the medication. 

Other Drugs that are listed on ASPCA website as top 10 poisonous drugs:

  

Antidepressants - Antidepressants can cause vomiting and lethargy and certain types can lead to serotonin syndrome—a condition marked by agitation, elevated body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure, disorientation, vocalization, tremors and seizures.
 

Acetaminophen - In dogs, it can cause liver damage and, at higher doses, red blood cell damage.
 

Methylphenidate (for ADHD) - Medications used to treat ADHD          (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) in people act as stimulants in pets and can dangerously elevate heart rates, blood pressure and body temperature, as well as cause seizures.           

Isoniazid - Often the first line of defense against tuberculosis, isoniazid is particularly toxic for dogs because they don’t metabolize it as well as other species. It can cause a rapid onset of severe seizures that may ultimately result in death.
 

Pseudoephedrine - is a popular decongestant in many cold and sinus products, and acts like a stimulant if accidentally ingested by pets. In cats and dogs, it causes elevated heart rates, blood pressure and body temperature as well as seizures.
 

Anti-diabetics -Many oral diabetes treatments—including glipizide and glyburide—can cause a major drop in blood sugar levels of affected pets. Clinical signs of ingestion include disorientation, lack of coordination and seizures.
 

Vitamin D derivatives -Even small exposures to Vitamin D analogues like calcipotriene and calcitriol can cause life-threatening spikes in blood calcium levels in pets. Clinical signs of exposure—including vomiting, loss of appetite, increased urination and thirst due to kidney failure—often don't occur for more than 24 hours after ingestion.
 

Baclofen - is a muscle relaxant that can impair the central nervous systems of cats and dogs. Some symptoms of ingestion include significant depression, disorientation, vocalization, seizures and coma, which can lead to death.
