Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Please don't give this a second thought, your Lab should be just fine. If this was a healthy mouse which he killed then he is not likely to suffer any adverse symptoms, this is just natural dog behaviour. And if the mouse had been poisoned then this is still not a worry as the amounts of Dcon your Lab would have ingested in this manner will be very small and well below any possible toxic level, so again so adverse symptoms would be expected.

2. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your Lab's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
