Abstract

Lead poisoning is seen primarily in dogs less than one year old; the highest percentage of those are less than five months old. Many sources of lead are available to young dogs, although lead-based paint and linoleum are the principal problems. The characteristic clinical signs involve the gastrointestinal system (vomiting, colic and diarrhea), nervous system (hysteria, convulsions and nervousness) or both.
