Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name is***** and I'd like to help. Can you tell me the exact brand of fly bait poison? What is your dogs weight?
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.
I checked Bayer. com and they recommend immediately seeking an ER if ingested. https://bayer.naccvp.com/product/basic/view/1040043?e=LSdew7K4HnVeeL2EuzyjnfL5DhrACqQQ
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.
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?
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-***-***-****.
Oh no! I am so very sorry.
