Help out a newb 'Tank Doctor'...?

For example, if I have a weapon that says it does +6-9 poison damage, what EXACTLY does that mean? Does it mean all of my abilities will do some amount of poison damage? Will my pets all do some amount of poison damage as well?
I'm asking because I'm interested in providing tanking/support to my allies (I play with my IRL friends more often than I play alone). I always use the dogs and the gargantuan, and both have proven to be helpful tanking tools-- the last boss fight I was in, the boss was focused on my gargantuan almost through the entire fight. Anyway, I thought that the Bad Medicine passive would be a good thing to take to help out my teammates (lowers the damage output of enemies you've dealt poison damage to). So, to make that passive work, do I need to use abilities that specifically do poison damage, or is my '6-9 poison dagger' doing it already?
Thanks in advance.
