The Terro Ant Killers rely on borax to kill ants. It would take an enormous amount of borax to intoxicate a 34 lb dog. I would expect transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea from ingesting such an unusual "food" but he wasn't intoxicated if he ingested the contents of a 1 ounce bottle. If he ingested the bottle too, please let me know.
