If skin contamination is suspected, wash the animal well with plenty of lukewarm water.

Dry thoroughly and keep the animal warm. Clipping of the hair or wool may be

necessary.

Epidermal structures (wings, nails, claws, feathers, fur) should all be cleaned with the
greatest care, paying particular attention to areas such as the ears, between toes etc.

The cleaning should be undertaken quickly to avoid licking and ingestion of the poison
and to limit cutaneous absorption.

Use soapy water (preferably a soap with a low pH) rinsing with copious tepid water and
repeat this as often as necessary and dry carefully.

The following must never be used: Organic solvents (alcohol, white spirit etc.) or oily
substances, which may actually increase percutaneous absorption of toxicant.

Do not rub the area vigorously. Cleaning and drying must be gentle but thorough.

The eyes should be flushed many times with water or normal saline.
