Puggle dog just got into advion ant bait trap. Contains 0.1% indoxacarb is this a problem?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with the Puggle?

Nothing at the moment. Just left the house for 15 minutes and when I returned I found the chewed ant trap.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the Puggle's name and age?

Buddha and age 7. Not my dog. I am dog sitting.

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

He always gets into everything. I thought the house was dog proofed but he found the trap under the stove in the kitchen.

Plastic is chewed but no pieces missing. Whatever was in the trap is gone so I assume he ate it.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
prefer not to call

Thanks

The good news is that these contents rarely cause problems unless a whole bunch is eaten.

Watch for vomiting or diarrhea- though dont expect anything

Update me in an hour or two

Okay?

Doc Paul,I am following up with you about Buddha, the puggle who seems to have an appetite for ant traps. He seems fine. No vomiting or behavioral changes. Took him for a walk and he had normal bowel movement and urination. Ready to feed him his supper. Will continue to watch. Thank you for your immediate response to my questions. Hope the rest of your day goes smoothly.Thank you!
JoAnn
