My name is***** You need to take your dog to the animal emergency room right away! Rat poison is FATAL to dogs and it is imperative that you make him vomit and then start treatment to prevent him from dying. The causes of death include internal bleeding from one kind of poison or seizures leading to death in the other common poison.

Please keep me posted on how he does,

I hope this answer helps you. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
