Activated charcoal is generally called the "universal antidote" by toxicologists, since it is active in adsorbing most toxicants except inorganic salts and heavy metals. ToxiBan is the "gold standard" for treating animal poisioning.
ToxiBan Suspension effectively adsorbs alkaloids (strychnine), organochlorine, organophosphate and carbamate insecticides, herbicides, rodenticides, paatsiticides, depressants and analgesics.
ToxiBan Suspension may be useful in treating ethylene glycol (antifreeze) poisoning. Tests for ethylene glycol must be conducted before ToxiBan is administered to prevent false positive reactions.
ToxiBan Suspension should be administered as soon as ingestion of poison is suspected or at the onset of symptoms. In case of diagnostic error, no ill effects will occur from treatment. Animals poisoned with strychnine should be sedated with intravenous injections of sodium pentobarbital or by other suitable methods.
ToxiBan Suspension is then given by rapid oral infusion. In cases of poisoning by nicotine or depressants, artificial respiration and administration of oxygen may be indicated.
