My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you.

Has your dog vomited yet? When did this occur? What is the brand of rat poison?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Both my outside dogs tore a hole in the tin shed to get the rat I assume. We had 2 one pound blocks in there and they r gone. Tomcat brand. Diphacinone. It was consumed between 9pm and 7am. I gave 2 teaspoon of peroxide ab 15 min ago. No vomiting

Unfortunately, this has probably already been digested. You need to get them to a veterinarian right away. They will need activated charcoal, an injection of vitamin K, and oral vitamin K. You can't get these things at a human pharmacy, so you will need to see a vet right away.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Best of luck.

There's no vets that will see them today. Most r just open for the grooming and boarding part.
