STOP TRODAX BEING USED AS POISON AND PROTECT OUR PETS sign now

My dog Tess was a typical Spaniel very inquisitive and loved to be out and about running along the ditches trying to sniff out birds. I never saw her ever come close to catching one but this didn't spoil her fun.Tess was the softest most sweet dog ever. She would never fight with another dog and if any hassle happened around her she would avoid it at all costs and would never get involved.She was so affectionate and slept on the bed every night and would insist on you keeping your arm around her.She never ever did anything or anyone any harm.

She went out recently into the fields around where we live and came back and appeared perfectly fine. I noticed that she was panting but no more than normal when they have been running plus it was a warm day. After a few minutes the panting had not eased off and even though she appeared absolutely perfectly well I was alerted. I rang the vet and was told to get her in. She was in 5 minutes later and they took her temperature which was 39.5 - slightly high. Other than that and still panting slightly she appeared fine. They ran all the blood test and all came back clear except it appeared she may have a slight infection, which went hand in hand with the slightly high temperature and panting. I was delighted as I said at least if she was slightly unwell she was being treated. The vet asked me to leave her for a while as they wanted to monitor her and re run the tests in a couple of hours. I left my girl, looking perfectly well and happy.

Within a few minutes of returning home the main vet rang me and he had just got in and had checked her temperature which was now 41 - he knew immediately that this was Trodax poisoning. He had made her vomit and she was on a drip of ice with fans all around her. He told me straight away that this was not going to end well.

I just stood there stunned-my little girl whom I had left with a potential infection with barely any symptoms even to show for it was basically starting to boil alive.

The vet rang me a couple of minutes later to say her temperature was 44 and she was in dire straits. I asked him to put her to sleep, he said she was about to go and she did.

This all happened within 2 hours of Tess finding whatever food that contained the Trodax. She was at the clinic within 10 mins of me noticing her panting.

Todax is used to kill foxes - it is a drug for treating liver fluke in Sheep and it is not expensive.

It is lethal to animals and there is not antidote.

It is lethal to people in small quantities.

A child would only have to eat a small amount and the outcome would be the same.

My dog was like my baby and some people may not feel the same about their animals but Trodax is being used so widely now during lambing season that someday soon a human will be killed- it is only a matter of time
