The minimal effective dose of activated charcoal in the treatment of sheep poisoned with the cardiac glycoside containing plant Moraea polystachya (Thunb) KER-GAWL



The minimal effective dose of activated charcoal in the treatment of sheep poisoned with the cardiac glycoside containing plant Moraea polystachya (Thunb) KER-GAWL



Journal of the South African Veterinary Association 53(4): 265-266



Of 16 sheep fed 1.25 g/kg of the plant, 14 were treated with either 0.5, 1, 2, 3 or 4 g/kg activated charcoal 6 or 12 h later. The two untreated sheep died after 28 and 70 hours. All sheep treated after 6 h recovered, although the two given 0.5 g/kg were severely distressed for one week. One sheep treated with 1 g/kg after 12 h died. Serum concentrations of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium varied only slightly, and ECG changes were slight.
