Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this situation with your little one. The absolute best thing to do in this situation is to get him to your vet / an ER clinic now. They can make him vomit and see if there is currently some in his stomach now. They can then give him doses of activated charcoal over the course of 24 hours, and they can start up Vitamin K1. These mouse poisons can either be of the type that causes bleeding, or the type that causes neuron injury. The bleeding one has an antidote, the vitamin K1. The neurologic one has no antidote and decontamination with inducing vomiting and then the activated charcoal is the best that can be done.
Bromethalin is the neurologic one. It is unfortunately again the one where decontamination is the only thing that can be done with the inducing of vomiting and then the subsequent doses of activated charcoal. I will be very honest here and say that a pup came into my ER last weekend that had eaten bromethalin the day before (they didn't get to us / contact us till 30 hours after ingestion) and all we could do was supportive IV fluids and activated charcoal every 8 hours. It wasn't enough and she passed. She was already showing signs of the toxicity on arrival so we were very late in trying anything. She was actually defecating out the green poison in her stools on arrival.
