My small dog found one of those green tomcat mice bait locks.

This answer was rated:

My small dog found one of those green tomcat mice bait locks. He is about 12lbs and appear he nibbled a bit off he corners of it. I'm familiar with the active ingredient and wonder if i should seek immediate vet care or keep an eye on him and take him if he starts to show signs of poisoning. We are not near our vet.

Hi Sir or Madam,

.

My name isXXXXX've professionally worked with animals for over 16 years dealing with both health and behavioral issues. I have over 14,000 satisfied customers. 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.

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%. Instructions on dosage can be found here:
