    Dogs mercury is poisonous and your friend should stop her dog eating it, it can cause vomiting and even seizures

    Most poisonings are the result of accidents, overdose, unusual reactions, carelessness or ignorance, but some are malicious! There are several categories of poisons:
    1. Medicines, e.g. sedatives, painkillers, heart tablets etc.
    2. Pesticides, e.g. weed killer, slug pellets, snail bait, certain flea treatments (e.g. those containing organophosphates) etc.
    3. Household chemicals, e.g. rat / mouse poison, antifreeze etc.
    4.
