We called the company of the rat poison and they said that my dog would have to eat 2.8 blocks of the rat poison... She didn't eat even a whole block. Do you agree with what the company told us?

Hi I am Dr. Denney. I am reviewing your question now. Please give me a few moments to type my response. Thank you for trusting us with your question.

I am going to strongly disagree with that company. They should not be giving you veterinary advice. Rat poison is never good. There are a few different ingredients that rat poison companies use. All of them are extremely dangerous to pets. Can you please take your dog into a veterinarian now for treatment? Waiting even a day with some of these poisons can mean the life of your pet. This poison (I believe) can cause neurologic symptoms.

Does this make sense? Are you able to get to a vet ASAP?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
My vet is closed... And I've called surrounding area vets and none answered their phone. I've looked up the vet hours on line and they are closed.

where are you located I will help find an emergency clinic?
