Onion and garlic poisoning
Onions and garlic are other dangerous food ingredients that cause
sickness in dogs, cats and also livestock. Onions and garlic contain
the toxic ingredient thiosulphate. Onions are more of a danger.
Pets affected by onion toxicity will develop haemolytic anaemia, where the
pet’s red blood cells burst while circulating in its body.
At first, pets affected by onion poisoning show gastroenteritis with
vomiting and diarrhoea. They will show no interest in food and will be
dull and weak. The red pigment from the burst blood cells appears in an
affected animal’s urine and it becomes breathless. The breathlessness
occurs because the red blood cells that carry oxygen through the body
are reduced in number.
The poisoning occurs a few days after the
pet has eaten the onion. All forms of onion can be a problem including
dehydrated onions, raw onions, cooked onions and table scraps
containing cooked onions and/or garlic. Left over pizza, Chinese dishes
and commercial baby food containing onion, sometimes fed as a
supplement to young pets, can cause illness.
Onion poisoning can
occur with a single ingestion of large quantities or with repeated
meals containing small amounts of onion. A single meal of 600 to 800
grams of raw onion can be dangerous whereas a ten-kilogram dog, fed 150
grams of onion for several days, is also likely to develop anaemia. The
condition improves once the dog is prevented from eating any further
While garlic also contains the toxic ingredient
thiosulphate, it seems that garlic is less toxic and large amounts
would need to be eaten to cause illness.
