Good Morning!

There is a cure for this toxin only if the exposure is slight and if treatment is instituted immediately. This toxin elicits a neurotoxic effect and is so lethal that as little as 15 gms will kill a 70 pound dog. Since your dog is a smaller breed, the prognosis is not as good. With treatment, your dog will either improve or die within 24 hrs.

Like I said before, this can be treated but it is extremely lethal.

let me know if I can clarify further...

Good Luck!
