Even a small amount of rat poison can cause serious problems. So if she ate some I would induce vomiting immediately using 1 tsp of hydrogen peroxide per 10 lbs of body weight, repeat in 15 minutes if she hasnt vomited. I would contact your veterinarian or the closest emergency hospital and seriously consider taking her in to get her treated over night to ensure nothing bad happens. I dont mean to panic you but i have seen small amounts cause serious problems.
