If this just occurred then the best place to start is to flush his mouth with cool water repeatedly.

It may be the taste/smell more than anything that is causing his reaction.

  1. How long ago did this occur?
  2. What are the active ingredients in the poison?
  3. How much do you believe he ingested?
  4. Is he currently being treated for flea prevention? If so what is the product and and its active ingredients?
  5. Any chronic health issues?
  6. How old is your pup?
  7. How much does he weigh?
