Customer Question
I have a golden...

I have a golden retriever about 10 yrs old. This afternoon around 2:30pm he licked a poison cube about 3 licks before I caught him. Will that make him sick?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Did you see what the Golden Retriever ate?

Yes. I thnk it is rat poison

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the Golden Retriever?

I don't think so. I think I could just be a little scared, he ate rice and dog food 30 min ago and seems to keep it down, but hes not as alert as I'm use to

Greetings, I'm Dr. Peck, hopefully I might be of some help.

Can you confirm, he licked the rodenticide a few times, but you are sure he didn't actually ingest any cubes or portion of a cube other than the licks?
