Customer Question
One of our Yorkies...

One of our Yorkies ate part of a rat poison bait containing bromethin. I know that he needs activated charcoal. Is this something I can do here at home, and wait till the morning to go to our regular vet, or do we need to go to the emergency clinic immediately?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the dog ate?

Yes, a bait block of Tomcat rat killer
