Induce vomiting by using a teaspoon of hydrogene Peroxide and
get to the vet right away. Rat Poison is just that, poison, and it
can kill your dog. Call the vet NOW!

7 dust is carbaryl, which can cause toxicity if ingested, but the signs are much different from rat poison. If it was rat poison, when did he ingest it, and what kind was it? Also, does he have any symptoms now?

If he just ingested rat poison within the last couple hours, you should induce vomiting and then follow up with your vet. Rat poisons cause internal bleeding a few days after the posion is ingested, and this is usually fatal if untreated. If caught early, however, it can be treated very easily with a special form of Vit. K (not over-the-counter). Call your vet for this.
