Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a couple questions of my own to ensure I give you the best advice possible....

Do you know how long it was between when he ate the poison and when you got him to vomit?

Did you see the poison in the vomit?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't know the timeframe of when he ate the bait today- I think he ate it about an hour ago - he was fed dogfood at 2:30. He thew up several times and I saw green bait each time. Some had larger "chunks" of bait.

is there anything else we can do for him? Should we bring him to a vet?
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 year ago.

Okay...great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

Since we think it was a while between when he ate it and when he vomited, we have to assume that he absorbed some of the toxin. Because of this, the safest route would be to have him seen by an emergency vet tonight so they can give him activated charcoal to help neutralize whatever poison is still in his stomach.

After that, they'll get him on a regimen of Vitamin K for the next several weeks to help bind to the toxin and get it out of the system.

You absolutely did the right thing by inducing vomiting...but having an emergency vet tonight will ensure he does well.

I hope this helps.
