Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!Glue Mouse traps should only contain glue and some enticing bait - but otherwise are non toxic. The primary concern is if Logan ingested the base which can be plastic and can be a foreign body obstruction or cause damage to the intestinal tract as it passes.Often the most you will see from this would be stomach upset such as vomiting or diarrhea but if he continues to act strange and his symptoms progress to vomiting, diarrhea (especially if either have blood in them), lethargy, or reduced appetite then please consider a veterinary er in the next 12 hours. In addition if he does the prayer position (play bow), the rolling around is not subsiding, his abdomen has any swelling, or a "glazed" look in his eye continues these are other reasons to consider a veterinary erTonight:- Pepcid (famotidine) 10 mg tablet every 12 hours- If he ate the base then please feed a few pieces of bread and take him on a leash walk 15+ minutes tonight and again in the morning to assist in gi motility and hopefully move it through- If he did not eat the base then feed a bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat for a few days in smaller more frequent meals to minimize gi upset.I hope this information makes sense but please let me know if I can be of any assistance today
