Customer Question
My small dog jingles...

My small dog jingles has had a little bit of a rat or mice block about an hour ago seems ok at the moment no vets open here in mount isa till tomorrow how harmful are they to dogs regards karyn

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

At the moment he's fine just worried if the amount that he ate is harmful or not it wasn't much that he ate

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No he's very active and healthy

Oh Jingles! With any amount of rat poison I'd recommend inducing vomiting and get to the vet ASAP. Give hydrogen peroxide at a tsp per 10#. You can repeat once 10 minutes later if no vomit has occurred. Alternatively have the vet induce vomiting which will work quicker. Take the package with you as there are different types of poison and they require different treatment. Best of luck.

Let me know if I can help in any other way! Kindly consider rating my answer; you can always get back to me with questions and updates after rating.
