Our 7 month old...

Our 7 month old Cavapoo puppy (10 pounds) licked the floor where the Terminex man had sprayed for roaches. They use Maxxthor SG. She has thrown up several times. Do I need to do anything?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the puppy will be able to digest that. What is the puppy's name?

Finley

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

Not that I know of. It seems like the last time she threw up it was mostly dry heaves, so I think her stomach is empty

The active ingredient in that product is the synthetic pyrethroid bifenthrin. Toxicity appears as vomiting, agitation, and tremors soon after ingestion. There's no specific antidote and so these dogs are treated symptomatically and supportively; for example, an antiemetic given by injection by Finley's vet, fluid replacement if there's been a considerable loss of fluids and electrolytes in the vomitus, and perhaps a calming drug if tremors arose. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

the vomiting probably rid her of the actual chemical and now we just need to watch for symptoms of dehydration?

Correct. Her vomiting should be protective. It probably arose due to ingestion of such an unusual "food" rather than toxicity. I don't consider her licking the bifenthrin a significant toxic event. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
