Hello again,

I have very quickly worked out an answer for you below.

1. If this has just happened with a dog of Markie's size then one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try to recover the mouse bait that way. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion then things should be OK. For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best : LINK

{ Also be aware that an ER vet will be able to quickly induce vomiting with prescription drugs }

2. However, if you fail to induce vomiting then be aware that there is a good antidote for many forms of rodent poison which your local vet will have available and also other measures your vet can take.

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

Regards,

Dr Scott
