Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

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.

If there is no vomiting then please consider a veterinary er to give stronger medications to induce vomiting such as apomorphine.

I would definitely still advise bringing the packaging to your veterinarian regardless in the morning to begin appropriate preventative care for him. Even if he seems to vomit everything he should be started on Vitamin K if this is an anticoagulant type of rodenticide that requires this therapy.
