Hi I'm Dr. Carole and I'm a small animal veterinarian. I'm sorry to hear about your dog. Usually ant bait is not that toxic but since we don't know for sure what was in it I would recommend making the dog vomit with some hydrogen peroxide. !-2 tablespoons by mouth should be enough but you can repeat in 15 minutes if it doesn't work.
