Hi there,

On the back of the box - what is the active ingredient of the product?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

I dont have the box. I know it is not warfarin. They say online that it kills warfarin resistant mice.

So it is an alternantive.

  • Follow-up:
    • Replace contaminated or spoiled bait immediately.

Hi there,

That is what I needed...

Anticoagulant rodenticides such as this one are quite common. The toxic nature of this poison causes animals to bleed to death. It accomplishes this by inhibiting Vitamin K metabolism. It takes approximately 48 hours after ingestion for clotting test abnormalities to develop, and an additional 24 hours before clinical bleeding to develop.

Based on your information I have 2 options:

1) Take your dog to the ER. They will make him vomit, administer activated charcoal, and then discuss the need for other medication.

2) Make your dog vomit at home. The 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide has been used successfully as an emetic agent. Stronger concentrations may be more of a problem. The general dose is 5 mls/ 5 pounds- not to exceed 3 tablespoons.

The best option, if possible is option 1. going to the ER is the best recommendation.

After making your dog vomit - your veterinarian can prescribe the antidote to reduce toxicity (Vitamin K1 - phytonadione). If you can not go to the veterinarian, it is possible you can find this at your local health food store - your dog will need 2.5mg/kg every 12 hours for 30 days

I hope this information helps!
