Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My dog ate a small block of tomcat mouse poison. Within 20 minutes of eating it I gave her hydrogen peroxide and she threw up all the green poison and the last 2 times she threw up it was clear. She is a year old and weighs 55 pounds. Now what do I do? The size of the block she ate was about 1 inch square and 1 1/2 inches long, maybe a ounce.
Can you tell me what the active ingredient or what tomcat this was (ultra, quickstrike etc)?
Bromadiolone is the active ingredient. This is a serious anticoagulant and does require veterinary care.
Even though it was vomited up there is still a huge risk of depleting the vitamin K resulting in the dog being unable to clot the blood.
Vitamin K therapy is needed for 14-21 days to prevent any internal bleeding. I would suggest having her seen at your local animal emergency so they can test the blood and get started on the Vitamin K.
I would not put this off. It can take up to 5 days to see any problems however by the time symptoms develop it is often to late to save the dog.
