Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, I'm Dr. Kara. I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment to review your concerns.
I'm sorry to hear that Libby chewed on an ant trap & and I understand that you are concerned.
There are several types of Raid ant traps with different formulas.
Some contain sodium tetraborate or Borax, while others have indoxacarb or pyrethrins, while others have hydramethylnon, and some contain Abamectin B1. None of these are highly toxic for dogs, but if she's small we need to be more concerned.
All have different symptoms to watch for so it would be helpful if I knew which one the trap contained.
Do you think she ingested the plastic too?
How much does she weigh?
How long ago did this occur?
How much peroxide was she given?
