Abstract

While there is considerable variation in the reaction of different species of animals to strychnine, the dog is particularly susceptible. The early symptoms of strychnine poisoning are anxiety and restlessness, followed by twitching and violent muscular contractions. The dog remains fully conscious until death occurs from asphyxia.
