Hi JaCustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

There are two types of poisons. One type is an anticoagulant and causes your dog to start bleeding from different areas such as nose, rectum, penis, etc. The other type causes an increase in thirst, frequent urination, vomiting, weakness, muscle twitching, seizures and eventually death. Symptoms do not appear immediately but from 18 hours to several days later. Bromathalin is the second type.

You will need to get your dog to vomit if it has been within 4 hours and then get your dog to the vet immediately. If you can not get your dog to vomit, go immediately to the vet. You can induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide 3%. It helps to jostle the stomach after giving the peroxide to help the foaming action. Instructions on dosage can be found here:
