I was not sure if this question is more appropriated to be here or in Pets Exchange. I'm posting here first.
I accidentally broke a thermometer in my bedroom and, by my lack of attention, have spread mercury along the house. I cleaned the most part before the spread, so what I found after was only really tiny drops of mercury. However, I have four cats and I'm afraid that one of these tiny beads could possible be stuck in them paws while they are walking and they possible lick it, swallowing the beads.
I'm maintain the house ventilated most part of day (except when I go sleep) to minimize mercury vapors and I already search for possible symptoms of mercury intoxication in cats and found weakness, vomiting, diarrhea and difficult walking. Until now, I didn't observe any of these symptoms, but I would like to know what I should to if I notice some of them.
Because COVID-19, reach my veterinarian maybe will be difficult.
PS: I live in a country which doesn't have a service to come to my house to check the mercury amount in the ar neither get rid of it.
