Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Chulo.

Ant baits are not very toxic to dogs and if he only licked it, it is probably not a problem but give me a moment to research what is in this particular ant bait.

Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 month ago.

Terro ant bait contains Boric Acid, one of the less toxic ant killers. He should be fine.

Pleae let me know if this is helpful and what other questions I can answer.
