fluoroacetamide

fluoroacetamide

a rodenticide, also used in control of rabbits. Odorless, tasteless and soluble in water and has excellent credentials as a rodenticide but is dangerous for other species including farm livestock and even humans. Signs of poisoning in dogs include extreme excitation, hyperirritability, crazy running and tonic-clonic convulsions. In horses and ruminants there are no signs of nervous excitation, death occurring as a result of cardiac failure manifested by tachycardia and cardiac arrhythmia. Called also Compound 1081.
