Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am so sorry you found out this is a rat poison ingestion, I definitely advise finding a veterinary er tonight and bringing Penny in along with any packaging of the rat poison that was used with you in order to determine how best to assist herThere are many varieties of rat poison so the brand and type are key in order to begin aggressive and appropriate therapy for her. Even if he doesn't have the packaging hopefully he has the receipt. With her vomiting blood I would not advise waiting until tomorrow to address this new developmentCLICK HERE for a list of types of rat poisons and more information about themPlease let me know how else I can assist you both tonight but please either contact your regular veterinarian if they have emergency hours or a local veterinary er as an alternative tonight...
