Customer Question
She may or may...

She may or may not have eaten a Tom Cat Mike killer worm. I'm not sure if she did. She was eating something near where it was put in a hole. Can I do anything now ?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Lacey 13-14

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Whether or not you would need to have done anything would be predicated upon Lacey's weight. This rodenticide contains 0.025% bromethalin - a neurotoxin which should trigger decontamination by emesis and the administration of activated charcoal at an amount approaching 0.23 mg per pound of body weight. Each worm weighs 5 grams (5000 mg) and equates to 1.2 mg/5 grams of bromethalin in the product. If you saw muscle tremors, hyperexcitation, or seizures within hours after exposure, Lacey would be in trouble. A more insidious sign - hind limb paresis - can arise in up to 5 days or later.

May I have an update on Lacey, please?
