Hi, I'm Dr. Steve. I agree with your vet. The concentration of poison in ant baits is very low and it is very rare to cause a serious or lethal problem in a dog that just licked a little. This doesn't mean that the won't get sick from licking it. There are no specific antidotes and depending on the ingredient, it usually isn't necessary to induce vomiting. The best thing to do is to make him comfortable and let his system work the poison out. This may take ea few hours to one day. If he isn't better in 24 hours after he licked the poison or if he shows other symptoms, you should contact your vet again. He should be OK, but it may take e a little time. Good Luck
