My dog swallowed the...

My dog swallowed the bait in 2 ant traps with .05% indoxacard. He weighs 50 lbs. He did not swallow the plastic covers.

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

Jack is 12 years old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Jack?

No, thank you

Don't give it a second thought. There isn't enough bait in these traps to intoxicate even the smallest dog. In addition, in sub-chronic toxicity studies (90 days) in dogs, after oral administration (in the diet) of 1 to 18 mg/kg/day no clinical symptoms of toxicity were observed. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Jack wasn't intoxicated. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
