d-CON contains either brodifacoum or difethialone. Both are anticoagulant rodenticides. Thankfully, ingestion of less than half an ounce of either won't intoxicate an 85 lb dog. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.

Prior reading your response i gave him a bit more peroxide per instructions a vet technician family member. Thank you for your positive answer. I hope he is okay. All i can do now is wait and keep an eye correct?

Yes, monitoring only makes the most sense. While unlikely, bleeding under the skin, from any orifice, or an increased respiratory rate indicating bleeding into the chest cavity are the signs to watch for. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
