Poisoned dogs in Kampot

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Poisoned dogs in Kampot

Post by phuketrichard » Sat May 11, 2019 5:34 pm

This is NOT something i would think will help the tourism business down there.

Posted just now on FB Kampot page

Hello everyone,

As most of you know dogs are being poisoned in Kampot. Two days ago 7 dogs were poisoned in Sovann Sakor village. There are people that are trying to find out who the thieves are.
They are poisoning dogs so they can rob your house and also to take your dog to the dog restaurants to sell. There are many dog restaurants in Kampot and these places are very hard to shut down and almost impossible to stop them.

So please lock your dogs in the house at night time, if you do not want your dog poisoned or your place to be robbed.

If your dog does get poisoned there are a few things you can try and do to help save your dogs life.
1) Charcoal, not what you use to barbeque, these are tablets and you can buy the tablets from any pharmacy.
2) Raw eggs, as many as you can until the dog throws up.
3) Honey and lime, a lot of lime as this usually makes the dog throw up.
All of these can be put down the back of the dogs throat. Open the dogs mouth, push whatever you are using to the back of the throat, close the dogs mouth and hold its nose up in the air and rub the throat of the dog. They will automatically swollow and hopefully this will make the dog throw up and remove the poison.
The dog will not want to eat any of what you are putting in its throat as they have been poisoned, so you have to force it, but obviously in a nice way.
If you can phone a vet but try these things first as a vet may not get to you in time.

If you hear a lot of dogs barking at night they are usually warning you. If you hear howling it may be a female in the area but always good to check both situations. If you see anything or anyone breaking in to a house please try and film the people and place. You can then get the police involved. If you do not have photos or video evidence the police will not get involved.
Please do not write any rude comments or explanations of what could or should be done in this country unless it is helpful.
Thanks.

You can also use hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting in dogs after poisoning.

Sad for the doggies...

I didn't know there were dog restaurants in Kampot and would've assumed they were being transported to Vietnam.

In addition to being wrong, eating poisoned dogs not good. Karma though. Someone years ago said rabid dogs taste better. Chinese like dog meat.... Hmm.

if they were poisoned for meat why were the bodies left in each case?
the count is up to 7 this morning.
perhaps it is a disease like distemper or parvo that kills quickly.
Kampot is a place where rumors start quickly and race through the community with little critical thinking.
