My 100 lb golden retriever ate some mouse bait in a protecta

Customer Question

My 100 lb golden retriever ate some mouse bait in a protecta mouse bait station. It's a light green granular bait. I just found out that she ate about 2 tablespoons worth about 5 hours ago. She isn't exhibiting any abnormal signs other than being more awake than she would be normally at this hour as well as panting. She's been playful.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Izzy. 9 yrs old
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Izzy?
Customer: Not at this time

There are two types of poisons. One type is an anticoagulant and causes your dog to start bleeding from different areas such as nose, rectum, penis, etc. The other type causes an increase in thirst, frequent urination, vomiting, weakness, muscle twitching, seizures and eventually death. Symptoms do not appear immediately but from 18 hours to several days later. If it is an anticoagulant, your vet may prescribe vitamin K to help offset the action of the rodentcide.

You will need to get your dog to vomit if it has been within 4 hours and then get your dog to the vet immediately. If you can not get your dog to vomit, go immediately to the vet. Since it has been 5 hours, use this information if it should happen again.

You can induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide 3%. Instructions on dosage can be found here:

If you do not know of an emergency vet, you may be able to find one on this site.
