Customer Question

Our house was tented with with vikane for termites. Now our dog is sick. Not moving, just laying around. If he ate a rat or lizard that came out of the house could this be the cause?

Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I have been a small animal veterinarian for 13 years.

Vikane is a volital gas so once the house airs out it should be safe. Even if your dog ingested a rodent or other critter it shouldn't make him sick.

I am concerned that your puppy is sick but I don't think it's the vikane.
