Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi this is Dr. Hill. I would make all three dogs vomit and then they need to be seen by your local veterinarian to start on Vitamin K1 to be safe (this can be done in the morning). Please read the active ingredient off of the package, so that I can make sure it is the one that causes clotting problems and not a newer product that causes neurologic issues and get back to me asap.
you should give all three dogs about 2-3 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide orally and then shake up their bellies or run them around. Make sure to look at what they bring up.
On it. Give me a minute. Please go ahead and make them vomit.
So that is an anticoagulant, which means that after ingestion the animal is not able to clot their blood normally and can bleed inappropriately anywhere in the body. Luckily you can make them vomit. How long ago did they get into it?
You can repeat the peroxide once. Also give them a little bit of food in between repeating the dose. What did the one bring up?
Ok. You have the option of taking them to an emergency clinic tonight and getting them started on vitamin k. If it was a small amount of rat bait and it was just put out today, then you can likely wait until tomorrow and contact your local veterinarian. Vitamin K is extremely safe, so I would put all three dogs on it. the length of treatment time depends on the type of anticoagulant. If you would like you can also call the animal poison control center(###) ###-#### they are a non profit, but do have a charge. they have the largest database of toxins and toxicologists on staff 24/7. Feel free to post additional questions. Take care.
Because the exposure may have been over a few days. They definitely need to see your local veterinarian and have clotting times and then get started on vitamin k. Easy antidote. Just want to make sure they do not have clotting issues. Your vet may want to give an initial injection and then start the oral. Feel free to ask additional questions. Take care.
