Welcome to My Dog Ate Rat Poison Help!
Rats and rodents are creatures that cause many problems. They carry disease which can be spread to humans and pets, they ruin foundations and wiring in the house, they build nests and breed very quickly, they leave a huge mess around the house… We just want them gone. The easiest way to do this is by using a rodenticide, or rat poison.
Rat poison is very effective and can kill rodents within a few days of consumption. However, not only is rat poison toxic to rodents, but our family dogs as well. This could be a problem. Even a small amount of poison can be very harmful to your dog. Rat poison consumption is a silent killer, because symptoms are usually not present for hours.
If you ever suspect your dog has consumed rat poison, or as soon as the poison begins to show symptoms, it is crucial that you take your dog to the veterinarian as soon as possible.
