Doctor H :

Hi, this is Doctor H and I'd be happy to assist you.

Doctor H :

What did your dog ingest, when did she ingest it and how much of it did she ingest?

JACUSTOMER-hq9g591z- :

She ate Rentokill "pasta bait" 10 minutes ago about 30 grs

Doctor H :

How much does she weigh?

JACUSTOMER-hq9g591z- :

17 kilos

Doctor H :

Do you have any hydrogen peroxide available?

JACUSTOMER-hq9g591z- :

no, we have none in the house

Doctor H :

Are you able to get some?

Doctor H :

Okay, there's limited information on this drug here in the US, however from what I can find the severe toxicities happen at 50mg/kg and she ingested 9 mg/kg. Still, I would recommend inducing vomiting with hydrogen peroxide or taking to an ER clinic where they can induce vomiting and give activated charcoal to limit absorption.
