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.

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
