Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.
Sluggo, the slug and snail bait, contains iron phosphate as its active ingredient and is considered non-toxic
to dogs. While toxicity isn't expected, iron phosphate can irritate Connor's gastrointestinal tract and cause diarrhea or, conversely, constipation.
As a precaution and to avoid further gi distress if your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds then walk around to mix it in the stomach
and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.
Depending on how much was ingested the risk of anything more than gi distress is low but regardless I would induce vomiting if you are able and this was within the last hour or so.
Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
