Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Imiprothrin is the active ingredient in the Raid Ant and Roach killer. In larger volumes, this can be a toxic ingestion for dogs. However, most dogs won't consume enough to cause a major problem. In general, we consider this to be fairly safe to be used around dogs. Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea can all be seen from this type of ingestion. It would be wise to give her a small amount of milk to coat the stomach and also a dose of pepcid to reduce irritation. You can administer a dose of regular pepcid (famotidine). You will want to give 0.5mg/pound of body weight (a 10# ***** would receive 5mg, a 5# ***** would receive 2.5mg, etc). For this, you can visit any human pharmacy and buy the OTC brand name Pepcid, or you can use the cheaper, off-brand “famotidine” that’s available. Either will be useful.If you notice any symptoms aside from GI concerns, have her examined promptly. Continue to feed her regularly on the schedule she is used to. If you want to avoid further GI complications, you can use boiled rice and chicken for a few days.
