What should you do if your dog eats mouse poison?


When any pet, including a dog, accidentally consumes mouse poison, it is recommended that their owner bring the dog to a veterinarian, or call the Animal Poison Control hotline at 888-426-4435. Common symptoms of poisoning include stomach bloating, vomiting, difficulty breathing, lethargy, and even collapse. Treatment options vary depending on the specific ingredients in the mouse poison, however various treatments include aggressive IV fluids, decontamination, antacids, and stomach pumping. If the dog's owner takes it to see a veterinarian, they should bring with them the container the mouse poison came in, so the vet is aware of exactly what the dog ingested.
