Friend, it is very likely that the bait will not be toxic. But, the fact that we do not know the ingredients I would play it safe and induce vomiting with peroxide 3%. To induce vomiting this is what you can do:

1- Give him 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide 3% orally to induce vomiting.

2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
