Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. How much does King weigh? How old is he? Do you have a feeling as to how much of the roach bait he may have eaten?

Hi, Dr. Bruce, King is about 5 weeks old, and weighs about 5 lbs, I believe he may have ate like about 4-5 bead size roach baits

Ok. Dinotefuran is used currently in some topical flea products for dogs and cats - the one that comes to mind is Vectra. So it has a safety range that has been established for its use. When it is used in the topical products, it isn't being ingested. So there is where some things may be different. Can you take a picture of the table that is cut off on the bottom for me? How long ago did the ingestion happen?
