Customer Question

My doxie Rosie was found with a tomcat pellet in her mouth it was still dry and none was missing from the pellet . Should I take her to my vet in the morning? Is there anything I should be doing now? This happened about 6 hours ago. I just got home and my husband told me about it.

Hi,

My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog ate rat poison. Do you still have the package for the product?

I would strongly recommend taking your dog and the packaging to your regular veterinarian in the morning. At the least, they will put Rosie on the antidote, Vit K1 so that she doesn't develop internal bleeding. For more information you can call the 800 number on the package or call ASPCA Animal Poison Control. They are your best resource for any animal poison-related emergency, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you think that your pet may have ingested a potentially poisonous substance, call (888)(###) ###-####/strong>. A $65 consultation fee may be applied to your credit card. They will ask you the name of the product as well as any listed ingredient and will tell you if the product is toxic and if you should rush your pet to the nearest veterinarian.

Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you.
