    Default Wtf i think my dog got electrocuted! :( :( :(

    I dont know what happened because i was at work but my mom told me that she was doing the laundry when she heard bert cried and saw that he was chewed on the wire of the refrigerator. She immediately kicked the wire out of berts mouth.. We are trying to contact the vet but was unable to do so coz here in the philippines they are not open 24/7. We noticed that his body is shaking and he keeps walking around the house drinking water.his lips also has some burns on the side. We try to feed him and he eats a bit.Is this something we should panic abt. Our bert is just 7mos old

    Default Wtf i think my dog got electrocuted! :( :( :(

    There must be an emergency 24h vet it doesn't have to be your regular one i would take him just in case-it is something that would really worry me
    Here are listings for emergency vets in Philippines http://www.vetworld.com/vetworld/philippines.html

    This info is from another website

    The most obvious sign of an electrical injury is burns in or around your dog's mouth. If either the whiskers or the hair surrounding the mouth are singed, this can be an indication that your dog has been burned at some point. The majority of serious symtoms are related to your dog's breathing, shortness of breath being the most common. Non-respiratory indicators are rapid heart rate (tachycardia), muscle tremors, seizures, and physical collapse.Some of the most common signs of serious electrical injury are:

    Coughing
    Abnormally fast breathing (tachypnea)
    Needing to be upright to breathe properly (orthopnea)
    Crackling sounds in the lungs (rales)
    Difficulty breathing (dyspnea)
    Bluish-tinged skin (cyanosis)

    The symptoms listed above can be due to an electrical cord injury, but there are other possibilities as well. Issues in the heart, such as an irregular heart rate, could be due to an existing heart disease. Electrocardiogram (ECG, or EKG) recording can be used to examine the electrical currents in the heart muscles, and may reveal any abnormalities in cardiac electrical conduction (which underlies the heartís ability to contract/beat). This will enable your veterinarian to confirm or rule out heart disease. Heart problems can also occur if your dog has ingested rodent poison. The poison used to kill rodents contains anticoagulants which block the production of vitamin K -- necessary for the clotting agents found in the blood to work normally. This possibility can be ruled out through blood coagulation testing.

    Generally with electrical cord injuries the lungs are filled with a pink, foamy fluid. There are often tan or gray wounds in the mouth, and areas with red spots inside the heart lining.

    Aww poor Burt, I agree with Pati, he should be checked out by the vet to make sure he's okay. I'm don't have any experience with electrocution, especially in a dog, but it could cause problems with his heart, like it mentions in Pati's article, and since dogs can't tell us what they're feeling, I would be worried, and have the vet check him out. I hope he is okay.

    Omg how terrifying, I hope you can get to the vet soon! Poor baby, I hope he's not in too much pain but we know burns hurt like ****. Do you have any plain yellow mustard you can put on the burns by his mouth?

    Ellaine, please take Bert to the emergency vet ASAP!! I hope you have one you can go to. Tate was 10 wks old when he chewed on an electrical cord and was electrocuted. He had fluid in his lungs, was on oxygen for two nights, and I thought i was going to lose him. I don't want to scare you but i just want to relay to you how important it is that Bert gets medical care now. In Tate's case, he was unconscious so i'm thinking with Bert, perhaps the fact that he's walking is a more positive sign. In any case, he needs medical attention ASAP. Please update us soon on how he's doing.

    Wow, yes I agree you should probably see a Vet. I think the dog should be okay being it survived the initial shock but if the dog is still acting strange or showing signs of distress you need a Vet
