My dog just ate a piece of bread that I sprayed Spectracide

Customer Question

My dog just ate a piece of bread that I sprayed Spectracide Bug Stop on because it was covered in ants in my kitchen.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Blu and he is 1 year
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Blu?
Customer: no ma'am

Hi this is Dr. Hill. There should be a number not the bottle to call and report possible toxicity. If not I can look it up and get back to you. Give me a couple of minutes. Is Blu acting okay?

Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

You should call the animal poison control center. (###) ###-#### No immediate information on this particular insecticide and the active ingredient is a newer product. Not typical pyrethrin. I will opt out in case someone else can help you.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.

The active ingredient in the Spectracide Bug Stop is Lambda cyhalothrin and does not typically cause organ failure, although Blu is likely going to have some vomiting, diarrhea and other GI effects from this ingestion. I would recommend taking Blu and the spray to your local vet along with a copy of this sheet about the chemical.
