Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years.
Can you tell me if the dog swallowed the trap itself?
How many pounds is the dog?
You have dodged a bullet. The plastic is more of a problem then what is inside. I am very familiar with Ant Traps and have checked the MSDS sheets.
The contents if ingested will not cause poisoning to pets. We have found they are low toxicity and do not carry any ill effects for dogs. There is a large margin of safety in the use of these ant traps.
If a large amount of the plastic was ingested, then we would have a problem. In this case it does not sound like it would be an issue.
I would still monitor your dog for any gastrointestinal upset and follow up with your Vet.
If there is any problems with her stomach, you can start a bland diet of boiled skinless chicken breast and white rice for a couple of days to keep the stomach rested. She should be fine.
