Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Was it just a quick lick or did she lick to the point of ingesting a good amount?

2- Do you know the name or active ingredient of the ant trap?

3- How much does she weigh?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Does that help.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Yes, it does help thank you. Friend, his will not be toxic for your dog; indoxacarb has a wide safety margin in dogs. No symptoms expected she will be fine; nothing to worry about.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
