Combat and no just looks like she ate a little bit of the inside and the bottom with the directions on it

Your dog will be fine! Fipronil is generally considered safe if ingested. It's a good poison for insects. It's the same active ingredient as used in some flea products which are safe to use on dogs and cats.Roach traps and ant traps ore vitually non toxic. they use very little insecticide and it is more a paste that is in the trap. The big issue that most concerns us is ingesting the plastic. As long as the plastice was not ingested Your dog should be fine. The most we see is a little intestinal upset that can be take care of with a few days of bland diet.

Please hit reply to discuss this information.

I'll send you a picture of it if I can to see what you think

I will await the picture. Some dogs will acutually eat the trap and that is when we have some concern on passing.

Your Dog should not have any problems. The tooth maks I see barely punctured the casing.

Did you have any further questions? I am here to assist you. My goal is to give you excellent service and to earn a 5 star rating.

Joan

Ask Your Own Dog Question

The part that is chewed should not cause a problem. We have dogs that will actually eat the whole Roach trap. What I am seeing should not cause a problem. If you are concerned you can feed a Teaspoon full of Pure canned pumpkin which helps what she may have gotten to pass through with no problems.
