-- He should be fine. You can breathe

These baits are low or even no-toxicity to pets, but the biggest threat is ingestion of the packaging.



Just to be sure though:



Symptoms of toxicity include excessive salivation, tearing of the eyes, increased urination/diarrhea, lethargy, spasms or muscle twitching and breathing impairment. If you see even slight symptoms begin, get to a vet quickly and bring the packaging.


--- Again though, you shouldn't find any problems.
