Rat Poison

11 posts in this topic

Hey

Two weeks ago my lab got bored staying in the garage. He pulled stuff off the shelves and destroyed a Corona Box and didnt break a bottle. But what he did do is eat mouse poison. Called the vet and he said to watch for bleeding and make sure he keeps drinking. Well no side affects noted untill 2 days before Thanksgiving. He had bad dirarra and kept throwing up. I run both dogs at night and often cant see them so figured it was something else he ate. Well on Thanksgiving he was very lathargic and still throwing up. Well off to the emergency room we went. They did a battery of test with nothing working. On Friday took him back to my vet in Inver Grove and we found where they took blood during the night it was not clotting. We then found a fine red line where the teeth and gums meet. The poor guy was bleeding internally. A blood transfusion and Vitimem K he is almost back to normal overnight. NO major activity for two weeks...(that will be tough) Moral of this story is really be carefull of where your poison is. Mine was 2 shevles up and in a closed container. After a internet seach this is exactly what happens a full two weeks later. Have a plan of what do do with your dog in a emergency.

Lucky to still have em

I'm glad your dog is recovering!!!

Mine got into some a couple summers ago, but I caught her doing it. I induced vomiting with hydrogen peroxide. After she vomited for about 15 minutes she was back to normal. I always carry hydrogen peroxide with her travel pack now.

When our lab did this as a one year old, she was at the vets for two days before they could get her to vomit it up. She was put on vitamin K injections for a few days, and had to be rechecked until her blood clotted as it should. Nothing to play around with, that's for sure.

Glad to hear your dog is recovering!

My dog got into some a few years back, I called the vet right away and they put the dog on vitamin k right away and then had me come back a couple weeks later for a blood test, all was well. I'm surprised the vet told you to just watch the dog for a few days rather than use the vitamin k right off the bat as a preventative, I think you really lucked out.

Glad it worked out for you.

The hydrogen peroxide works well. It must be done right away though when the poison is still in the dog stomach.

How much hydrogen peroxide? I start with a cup and see how that goes. It'll do its work in around a half hour. Notice the color at the last of its vomiting, if its still green give him another dose.

Now I gotta make sure the peroxide is in my travel first aid kit.

Rodenticide is great for inducing internal bleeding and anticoagulation. Good thing you were paying attention and knew what your dog got into. Good thing Vitamin K is the antidote.

Surface is right. Only use the Hydro if you catch them in the act. If it's more than 15 minutes after they got into something it's too late to do any good. I didn't go through the poison but had a beagle that got into treats and over ate. Ended up in the ER for a night.

Glad your dog is OK now.

    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
