Hello again Ben

I have worked out an answer for you ...

1. One of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the rodent poison that way, If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion then things should be OK . For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best : LINK

{ Also be aware that an ER vet will be able to quickly induce vomiting with prescription drugs }

2. However if you fail to induce vomiting or if you are not sure you have retrieved the half block by inducing vomiting then you should have your dog checked over by a vet without delay as there is a good antidote available for some forms of rodent poison and other measures your vet may be able to take. But time could be of the essence ...

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott
