Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your dog! Do you happen to have the packaging or know the brand of ant bait so I can try to find the active ingredient? Luckily most of these ant baits have a very low toxicity and the most dangerous component is if the dogs eats the plastic casing that the bait is enclosed in. Did your dog eat the plastic as well?
