Fortunately, this compound appears to be very safe in dogs and cats. (NLM, 1995). Generally, an AChE activity that is <50% of normal indicates significant exposure while an AChE activity <25% of normal indicates toxicosis. (Prod Info, 1986) Rats dosed orally with hydramethylnon eliminate 72% of the dose in 24 hours and 92% in 9 days. Rabon® oral larvicide technical bulletin. Pyrethroid insecticides are frequently used to control insects in residential and agriculture settings in the United States and worldwide. Animals do not die from constricted pupils or hypersalivation; the primary goal of atropine use is to control bradycardia and bronchial secretions. A possible effect on the immune system of horses fed AMDRO has been suggested (Miller et al, 1984). Cats have shown some depression, ataxia and salivation when saturated with the tetrachlorvinphos sprays, but this may be due to the alcohol content and the taste of the product. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Complete recovery from acute effects may take several days, but blood cholinesterase levels may take up to 3 months to return to normal.
A few skin hypersensitivity reactions have been reported, most likely to the carrier. Like organophophates, carbamates competitively inhibit AChE by binding to its esteric site. This causes reversible prolongation of sodium conductance in the nerve axons and results in repetitive nerve discharges. SDS Biotech Corporation Animal Health Business. Parmar, J.J., Parikh, P.V., Kelawala, D.N.

Selamectin has been given to six week old puppies and kittens at ten times the normal dose with no problems. Permethrin based
Selamectin is safe in collies and heartworm positive dogs and cats. These dermal hypersensitivity reactions may be to the active ingredient or to the carriers. Activated charcoal and a cathartic may be given (weigh risk of aspiration). Oral
How toxic are these insecticides to dogs, cats and other animals?
If the animal is still asymptomatic, activated charcoal with a cathartic may be given. AChE activity can remain depressed for 6-8 weeks after exposure. If no response after 3 doses, discontinue treatment. If symptomatic, atropine may be given to control the muscarinic signs (atropine does not control nicotinic signs). More rarely, dogs that are hypersensitive to pyrethrins/pyrethroids, or ingest a large or concentrated amount, can develop more severe symptoms such as tremors, twitching, shaking, difficulty breathing, incoordination or difficulty standing or walking, weakness, seizures, and rarely, death. Overdosing can cause toxic signs in both dogs and cats. It works by binding to the acetylcholine receptor on the postsynaptic portion of insect nerve cells, preventing acetylcholine from binding. Aust Vet J 1999 Mar;77(3):202. (MacDonald, 1995) Permethrin toxicity usually occurs when the owner applies the dog spot-on product to the cat; however, cats which actively groom or engage in close physical contact with recently treated dogs may also be at risk of toxic exposure.
Pergamon Press, Elmsford, NY. Animals do not die from constricted pupils or hypersalivation; the primary goal of atropine use is to control bradycardia and bronchial secretions. (Smith, 1991) Since part of lindanes metabolism requires glucuronidation, lindane is extremely toxic to cats and has never been approved for use in this species
Integrated Risk Information System Database, Washington, DC, 1995. Pathological changes in heart were observed only on the level of ultrastructure. SDS Biotech Corporation Animal Health Business. Cypermethrin is of moderate acute toxicity by the oral and inhalation route and of low acute toxicity by the dermal route. As a consequence, cypermethrin remains much longer in the cat's organs than in dogs or other mammals and can be fatal in large doses. Give a preanesthetic dose of atropine (0.02 mg/kg IV for dogs and cats) and monitor the response.

Bai D, Lummis SCR, Leicht W, et al: Actions of imidacloprid and a related nitromethylene on cholinergic receptors of an identified insect motor neuron. The Pesticide Manual Tenth Edition. These rat thyroid tumors were caused by suppression of thyroxin (T4) and a subsequent increase in thyrotropin stimulation hormone production leading to thyroid gland hyperplasia. Imidacloprid also has a higher binding affinity for insect receptors. AChE activity testing is a diagnostic indicator and will not indicate which insecticide or how much an animal was exposed to. Bioassays with the earthworm Eisenia fetida, the potworm Enchytraeus crypticus, the springtail Folsomia candida, and the land snail Helix aspersa were performed according to slightly modified versions of Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (Paris, France) or International Organization for Standardization (Geneva, Switzerland) guidelines and resulted in median lethal concentrations of greater than >1,000 to 31.4 mg/kg and sublethal no-observed-effect concentrations of 2.51 to 82 mg/kg. If the heart rate increases and mydriasis occurs, then the muscarinic signs are probably not due to an OP or carbamate insecticide because it usually takes roughly 10X the preanesthetic dose to resolve signs caused by acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. 200 300
Hayes, W. J., Jr. and Laws, E. R., Jr., Eds. Chlorpyrifos is readily absorbed following oral, inhalation, or dermal exposure. Other information related to each chemical may include solubility in a variety of substances and resistance to light and heat. (Stout et al, 1985). W.B. It also suppresses the immune system, inhibiting the formation of. Treatment for dermal exposure is bathing with liquid dish washing detergent (avoid human exposure by the use of heavy-gauge rubber gloves). may be seen. 1984. 17-24
Toxicity related to pyrethrins is usually associated with applying much more of the product than directed. Mandatory incorporation of sublethal toxicity data will ensure that in regions with temperate climate, the effects of pesticides on populations of soil-living organisms are unlikely. The acute toxicity of cypermethrin was very variable and depended on factors such as age, sex Compend Contin Educ Pract Vet 21(suppl):32-35, 1999. However, this is a reversible inhibition of acetylcholinesterase. Other Insecticides

Testing of the influence of subchronic (6 weeks) load of sheep organism caused by the pyrethroid insecticide supercypermethrine on functionality of cells of the immune system was carried out.
WB Saunders Co., Philadelphia 1990;20(2)375-382. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It is used to control aphids, leafhoppers, thrips, beet flies, spider mites, and coffeeleaf miners. Carbamates are acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors derived from carbamic acid. Dog
Finally, selamectin is selectively distributed from the bloodstream into the sebaceous glands of the skin, forming reservoirs that provide persistent efficacy against fleas, ear mites and sarcoptic mites. It is found in spot-ons and sprays (Frontline®) for pets, along with roach traps. LD50 (mg/kg)
These baits contain large amounts of sugar that make it very palatable to dogs and other animals.
Imidacloprid is not degraded by the enzyme acetylcholinesterase and atropine is not antidotal. Quick recovery is seen after bathing and supportive care. Fourth Edition. It was first synthesized in 1974 (1). It is used for crop, fruit and vegetable pest control, termite control, and flea control in dogs and cats (Advantage, Admire, Condifor, Gaucho, Premier, Premise, Provado, and Marathon). Gosselin, R. E., Smith, R. P. and Hodge, H. C. Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products, Fifth Edition. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report describing pyrethroid toxicity in a dog.

Consalvi PJ, Arnaud JP, Jeannin P, et al: Safety of a 0.29% w/w fipronil solution (Frontline® Spray) in dogs and cats. Each pet responds differently to products that contain permethrin. Selamectin (Revolution®) is a novel, semi-synthetic avermectin. Type I pyrethrins bind to the sodium channels on nerves and alter the voltage-dependent gating kinetics. U.S. Department of Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service, Washington, DC, 1986. Interspecies differences in sensitivity may be explained by differences in exposure and differences in metabolization rate. (Weil, 1997) Fipronil is detected on the hair shafts but is never detected in the dermis and adipose tissue, suggesting that it is absorbed and accumulated in the sebaceous glands, from which it is slowly released via follicular ducts. WB Saunders Co., Philadelphia 1990;20(2)375-382. Cypermethrin was not a skin … Liver, kidney, GI contents, and source material should be collected (and frozen) so that insecticide panels can be done to identify which insecticide has caused the toxicosis. This is associated with UGT1A6 deficiency in cats, the enzyme responsible for metabolizing cypermethrin. Imidacloprid is a safe insecticide. Toxicity related to pyrethrins is usually associated with applying much more of the product than directed. Permethrin was the most frequently detected (>50%) pyrethroid in these media, followed by cypermethrin (wipes, dust, and food).
Dogs fed 2000 ppm per day (2 g/kg of food) had decreased plasma cholinesterase activity (normal erythrocyte and brain cholinesterase activity) but no other clinical effects. Bethesda, MD, 1995.

Except for flea collars, chlorpyrifos is not approved for use on cats. Organochlorines are chlorinated hydrocarbons that inhibit GABA. Hydramethylnon residues can be detected by using chromatography or mass spectrometry. However, the blood AChE will probably be depressed. If the animal is orally exposed to a toxic amount and is still asymptomatic, induce emesis and give activated charcoal. Animals exposed to chlorpyrifos may present with typical muscarinic SLUDDE signs (salivation, lacrimation, urination, defecation, dyspnea, emesis) and bradycardia. Office of Drinking Water, Washington, DC, 1987. This compound may be conjugated with glycine and eliminated, or reduced to guanidine. The low concentration products approved for cats contain 0.05-0.1% of permethrin and do not seem to cause the signs that the concentrated (45-65% permethrin) canine spot-ons do. Mydriasis and miosis occur with the same frequency. 1000 1000-2000
Most of the studies were carried out using cypermethrin of cis:trans isomer ratio 50:50 to 40:60. With acute toxicity, predominant neurologic signs are tremors, (especially of the back, top of head, and neck), ataxia, depression, and seizures. Onset of clinical signs is usually within a few hours of exposure but may be delayed up to 24 hours. Oral Dermal

Permethrin is approved for small animal flea control, large animal topical fly control, crops, ornamental plants and human use. It has been recently hypothesized that there are two binding sites with different affinities for imidacloprid and that this compound may have both agonistic and antagonistic effects on the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor channels. The results indicate that alpha-cypermethrin increased the amplitude of IA and theta-cypermethrin decreased the amplitude of IA, and both of them shifted steady activation curve of IA towards negative potential. If no injectable methocarbamol is available, the oral form may be dissolved in water and given rectally. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Integrated Risk Information System Database, Washington, DC, 1995. However, the time of "aging" varies with the compound and so 2-PAM may be effective even days after exposure. Office of Pesticides and Toxic Substances, Washington, DC, 1984. used together, cypermethrin will not be bro-ken down as fast as it normally is . Griffin L, Hopkins TJ: Imidacloprid: Safety of a new insecticidal compound in dogs and cats. Some of the known side effects that develop in pets treated with permethrin include Skin reactions can be treated with bathing +/- antihistamines or steroids. These dermal hypersensitivity reactions may be to the active ingredient or to the carriers.
Cole LM, Nicholson RA, Casida JE: Action of phenylpyrazole insecticides at the GABA-gated chloride channel. Cadmium (Cd) has been recognized as 1 of the most toxic metals and is a common contaminant in the aquatic system. The dose can be repeated as needed, but do not over-atropinize the animal.

Hypersalivation, depression, vomiting, anorexia and even death may also be seen. As a general rule, dogs tolerate etofenprox and most synthetic pyrethroids very well, since toxicity is about 1000x higher to insects and other arthropods than to mammals. Mydriasis and miosis occur with the same frequency. Disulfoton
(Fikes, 1990) However, blood AChE does not always correlate well with clinical signs. Glucuronide conjugation is needed to metabolize permethrin. Indianapolis, IN, 1986. Smaller dogs seem to have a greater risk of toxicity and any animal can have a dermal hypersensitivity reaction to a spot-on. If the cat is actively seizuring, barbiturates, propofol or inhalant anesthesia can be used. Oral
Fipronil is a safe insecticide. Pesticide toxicity is very common in pets when these drugs are used to control insects and ecto-parasites. Gosselin, R. E., Smith, R. P. and Hodge, H. C. Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products, Fifth Edition. Am J Vet Res 1984; 45:1023-1027. Results of a chronic feeding study revealed no adverse effects in dogs given imidacloprid at a dose of 15 mg/kg daily for 1 year. In Handbook of Pesticide Toxicology. (Stout et al, 1985). (Anadon, 1991; Sidon, 1991) Although not a routine analysis, necropsy samples of liver, fat, brain, and/or CSF fluid can also be used to confirm exposure. ResearchGate has not been able to resolve any citations for this publication. (Bai, 1991; Lui, 1993) This prevents transmission of impulses, resulting in paralysis and death of the insect. The following organs were taken for histological examinations: brain, lung, heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, thymus and lymphatic nodes. Werner G, Hopkins T, Shmidl JA, et al: Imidacloprid, a novel compound of the chloronicotinyl group with an outstanding insecticidal activity in the on-animal treatment of pests. There have been reports of benign thyroid tumors in rats exposed to fipronil and concern was expressed about the potential for carcinogenicity. Disulfoton (Bay S276, Disyston, Disystox, Dithiodemeton, Dithiosystox, Frumin AL, Solvigram, Solvirex) is a selective, systemic organophosphate insecticide and acaricide that is especially effective against sucking insects.

(Weil, 1997) In toxicity studies, the application of Frontline® spray to dogs and cats at a dose five times higher than recommended for 6 months did not cause any clinical, biochemical, hematological, or cutaneous abnormalities. Indian J. Vet. It is used as an insecticide on crops, lawns, ornamental plants, several species of animals and in dwellings. Tox Appl Pharm 1991;110:1-8. Meister, R.T., (ed.). The acute test results allow the hazard identification of cypermethrin as a local irritant for the airways (STOT SE 3). Chlorpyrifos is highly toxic to birds, fish, aquatic invertebrates, and honeybees. Williams and Wilkins, Baltimore, MD, 1984. (Sine, 1987; Kidd, 1991) In a 26-week study in dogs, doses of up to 3.0 mg/kg/day resulted in increased liver weights and increased liver:body weight ratios. Rabbit
