The absolute safest course of action is a trip to the vet asap! Rat poison is nothing to fool around with! I'm afraid if they wait for symptoms it may be too late.

Thank you Poodle mom ..they are now on their way to do exactly that.....and bless you for your quick response...i described what happens to rats..that they begin bleeding internally and it is so paintful that they will chew off their toes..and they didn't get it...i can almost breath now. i pray it isn't too late. It is a puppy.

It is Angela...David's girlfriend's aunt's dog.....angela will take responsiblity for it and it wont' be cheap either. I doubt truly that at this amount of time..2 hours that their is much they can do..i am afraid the damage will already be done, if it were my dog it would have been a grab and run..lights and sirens running. Angela asked her aunt what she wanted her to do when she found this and the aunt said lets wait and see if he ate any..if he starts vomitting or something. She will regret those words.lets hope the lord looks after fools. Lets hope that he didn't swallow any..hope he is that fortunate and the aunt learns her lesson NOT the hard way.. it was a seriously stupid non loving thing to say. That is not what i would do if it was Victor..he!! i would be running him to a people er if there were no er animal clinics which there is less then 5 miles from here.

Amen Smkie if that was Carey I would be knocking on the vets door if I had to. If the box is chewed up it's a safe bet he ate it, I don't see this having a good outcome, the poor baby

Please keep us posted when you hear anything!

I refuse to have any of those poisons here - I know I could place it where the dogs and cat wouldn't have access to but I have always worried that they could have access to any of the critters that ingested it and I worry that 2nd hand ingestion could also be dangerous. There are natural repellents that I have found that have handled the problem we have had with mice & roof rats and I don't have to worry about my furpals.
