Just looking to see if my 15 pound dog is going to be okay

Customer Question

Customer: Just looking to see if my 15 pound dog is going to be okay after eating a partially full Terro Bait
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The package was left open and on the floor. Then I noticed she was inquiring about it, so I put it up on the counter. She is 11months old and weighs about 15 pounds. When I was walking my other dog she must have gotten a hold of it and ate the contents but not the package.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dog Veterinarians generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

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?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
She is acting normal.
Expert:  Jess K replied 10 months ago.

Ok. And it is the Terro brand bait she ate ? Just a small amount of the bait inside the packaging?

Expert:  Jess K replied 10 months ago.

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.
