PODS - laundry detergents packets

There has been alot of talk lately regarding the Laundry detergent "PODS" regarding small children. Children have been playing with these bright colored "PODS", and being poisoned. Well, pets have been playing with these also, and putting these in their mouths, and becoming very ill, or worse. Here is an article that I had found, that I wanted to share with all of you regarding such problem. I hope that none of you have had to experience this problem. Let's be more aware of what is around that our pets may get into.

Why Detergent Pods Are So Dangerous
The reason pods are more dangerous for pets than simply licking a bit of spilled detergent off the floor or their fur is the product formulation. The detergent in the pods is both highly concentrated and under pressure. If a pet bites down on the pod, it can cause the liquid to be forcefully expelled and easily aspirated (breathed in) or swallowed, often in large amounts. So even if you are using more natural or chemical free detergents in pods, there are still substantial risks. 
Detergent is foamy, and when an animal ingests the stuff and then vomits, the foam can be pulled into the lungs. In a worst-case scenario, the detergent coats the airways and hampers oxygen exchange in the lungs, which causes suffocation.
Of the cases reported to the Pet Poison Helpline during 2013 and 2014, 72 percent of pets exposed to detergent pods developed symptoms of toxicity. Eighty-four percent had vomiting, 21 percent experienced coughing, 17 percent became lethargic, and 13 percent developed shortness of breath, wheezing, or other irritation of the respiratory tract.
Another problem with pods is they’re often more accessible to a curious pet than bottled detergent due to their convenient packaging. A pod can easily wind up on the floor where a pet can find it and gnaw on it.
The pods are designed to dissolve in water, so saliva from a dog’s mouth can weaken the plastic and cause the contents to leak out even if the pet hasn’t actually punctured the package.

Treating Detergent Poisoning
There is no antidote for poisoning caused by exposure to laundry or dishwasher detergent. The focus of treatment is to dilute the exposed area, typically the mouth, skin or eyes, as much as possible by rinsing until the slick feel of the soap is gone.
If there is persistent vomiting or respiratory symptoms, aspiration should be suspected.
If you think your pet has bitten into a detergent pod, first rinse out his mouth until the soapy feeling is gone. Do the same with any other exposed areas. Call your veterinarian or an emergency veterinary clinic right away. If your pet isn’t vomiting, your vet may give him small amounts of water or milk to dilute the detergent. If there is detergent on his coat, it should be thoroughly rinsed away.
Needless to say, if your pet has persistent vomiting or difficulty breathing, it’s doubly important that you see a veterinarian immediately.
Remember to keep all laundry products out of the reach of your pet and young children.
