Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog! Can you tell me if your dog ate the plastic as well as the bait, or just ate the contents of the bait?
Hello? Are you there? As I read your question it appears your pup did not eat the package, correct? Is she acting normally right now?
Ok. And it is the Terro brand bait she ate ? Just a small amount of the bait inside the packaging?
Luckily if she has just eaten a portion of the Terro brand ant bait and not the packaging itself, you do not need to fret. The active ingredient in these baits is usually Borax and is not toxic in the doses found in one ant bait, so the real concern with these traps is if the dogs eats the whole trap, and then the concern is the plastic, not the bait.
