If he is having a seizure, you need to go to the ER clinic immediately. They can properly get the poison out of his system and treat the symptoms he is having.

Expert:  Christi Belew replied 5 months ago.

I checked Bayer. com and they recommend immediately seeking an ER if ingested.

Expert:  Christi Belew replied 5 months ago.

If you do not have access to an ER within 30-40 minutes of your location, please let me know. There is not much that can be done at home, he will need IV medications to control these symptoms.

If I have answered your questions, please kindly rate me (this is how I am compensated for my time). If not, please reply back and I am happy to answer additional questions. Thank you.

We don't have an ER clinic near by. We are 2-3 hours away from nearest one.
Expert:  Christi Belew replied 5 months ago.

Ok, I'm going to do some digging on some options for at home. Can you list for me any medications you may have left over at home?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Medication for humans? I don't have any medications for dogs.
Expert:  Christi Belew replied 5 months ago.

It is essentially an overdose of imidacloprid. In a clinic setting, he would be given IV fluids to flush his system and anti-seizure medication (like diazepam, phenobarbital, etc). It is not recommend to induce vomiting, as this product is damaging to the esophagus. Your best bet is to keep him in a calm, quiet place, give not food for 12 hours and offer small amounts of water.

I have found this information, it is a direct call to Bayer that should be open as well:

Have the product container or label with you when calling a poison control center or doctor or going for treatment. For emergency medical treatment call 1-***-***-****. For customer service or to obtain product information, including MSDS, call 1-***-***-****.
