Is there anything else I can use to induce vomiting?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I think I have activated charcoal
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 1 year ago.

Friend, the active ingredient in Tomcat is Bromethalin which is a central nervous system poison, there is no antidote. It is important to try to induce vomiting immediately, I would strongly recommend taking him to the nearest ER veterinarian and they can induce vomiting with a medication called apomorphine, please do not wait any longer, time is of essence.
