Hello,

Well, the good news is that ant bait has very active ingredient and toxicity to pets. It's nothing like rat/mouse bait. So, we don't have to worry about issues like seizures or bleeding disorders. However, if enough was ingested, you would still need to monitor for any gastrointestinal distress. If ANY vomiting (even just once) or diarrhea is observed, I would recommend a vet visit immediately for supportive care. Otherwise, you should be in good shape.

Hope that information helps
