Macadamia nut toxicosis in dogs
Steven R. Hansen, DVM, MS, DABVT
en heeft het hele verhaal in acrobat, dit is klein gedeelte:
Clinical signs commonly reported from most to least frequent were weakness, depression,vomiting, ataxia, tremors, and hyperthermia
The reported time from ingestion of nuts to
development of clinical signs was less than 12 hours in 79% of the cases.
The dogs developed marked weakness with the inability to stand on their rear legs by 12 hours after dosing. Extensive blood tests were performed, but only serum lipase
activities were elevated. All dogs appeared normal within 48 hours.
The exact cause of the clinical signs of toxicosis resulting from macadamia nut ingestion by dogs
is unknown. The actual Mechanism of action could be specific to the dog and may involve constituents of the nuts themselves, contaminants from processing, mycotoxins, or other
unidentified causes. Additional research is needed to answer this question.
