Hello, again, my name is***** will do my best to help you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How long has it been since he ate the poison?

2- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It has been about 2 hours.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The active ingredient is Bromethalin.
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 9 months ago.

Friend, I am sorry for the delay in response, I was offline by the time you came back. At this point inducing vomiting with peroxide will not help as the poison has likely moved out of the stomach. Bromethalin is a poison that affects the central nervous system, there is no antidote; treatment would be supportive. I would strongly recommend taking him to the nearest vet for supportive care. Unfortunately, at this stage there is not much you will be able to do at home that would have any significant therapeutic benefit, I am sorry. I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
