Customer Question

My 16 lb. Westie just got hold of an open ant bait - Terro Liquid Ant Bait. What should I do? I don't think he ate very much but some.

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about Tavish! Luckily most of these ant baits have a very low toxicity for pets (when I look online, it appears the one you are naming has an active ingredient of sodium borate- if you have the package you can double check), and most issues that arise are usually if the pet ate the actual plastic container, and not from the bait itself. Did your dog eat any of the plastic?
