Some of our customers own dogs and are concerned about the effects of rodenticides on their pets. Customers ask, "What will happen to my dog if it consumes rodenticide directly?"

The situation described above is called primary poisoning. The rodenticide that we use is called Contrac, and is manufactured by Bell Labs. According to the manufacturer, a dog needs to consume over 5% of it's bodyweight in rodenticide, for veterinary treatment to be advisable.

Before you rush off the the veternarian, consider if your pet has consumed over 5% of their body weight.

If you have a 10 pound dog, the manufacturer estimates that if 8-16 rodenticide blocks are consumed, treatment would be advisable. You should seek treatment immediately, if a 10 pound dog consumes over 16 blocks. There is a treatment or antidote of Vitamin K.
