My dog is shaking pretty bad. The only thing I can think of

Customer Question

My dog is shaking pretty bad. The only thing I can think of is that she somehow ate some mouse trap poison. That would of been about at least 4 hours ago. I think she is also starting to lose her balance. What should I do

The rodenticide bromethalin can cause muscle tremors, hyperexcitation, or seizures within hours after exposure and the snail baits containing metaldehyde can cause similar symptoms. If either is possible, Daphne will need the attention of an on-call vet at your earliest convenience. I'm concerned that she has become ataxic ("drunken sailor" which suggests worsening in her condition.

I regret that I'm not allowed to communicate with customers by phone. Please stay in this conversation.
