Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi, I can help you with your question today. Can you tell me specifically what type of poison you used? A particular brand, or even the active ingredient listed on the package?
OK, this is highly dangerous. If he has vomited in the house, you need to open your windows and leave the house.
It's good that he already vomited, hopefully he got the majority of the toxin out. However, he should still be seen at an emergency hospital right away.
Let them know that he ingested zinc phosphide and that they need to be aware of phosphine gas exposure.
He should be kept on IV fluids, and given medication to keep his stomach pH alkaline.
He may need oxygen supplementation, and we should monitor his kidney and liver values for signs of damage.
Please let me know if you have further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
