Fluoroacetate was dosed per stomach tube to 17 Merino sheep at the rate of 0,05-1,0 mg/kg/day. The clinical signs, haemodynamic changes, chemical pathology and pathology of acute, subacute and chronically intoxicated cases are described. Tetanic convulsions were seen in acutely intoxicated animals and in them respiratory failure, occurring concomitantly with cardiac failure, may have been the cause of death. Subacute intoxication resulted in less conspicuous clinical signs when the sheep were… CONTINUE READING
