Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. Do you have the packaging to tell me what the active ingredient is? If he just ate it, then if you can get him to an ER clinic right now, they can give him an injection to induce vomiting and to then give him activated charcoal to reduce that amount that is absorbed. If an owner can't get to the vet immediately, then inducing vomiting at home can be done to get some out. Here is a link on that.

Some of the poisons cause bleeding issues while others can cause neurologic issues. Knowing which one is involved then determines what the next step is.
