Hello, this is MarcInLaw and welcome to JustAnswer. I will be the lawyer working with you today and I will be happy to advise you to the extent possible on this platform. I am sorry to hear about it.
Is it possible that the neighbor's dog accessed your shed?
First thing, do not admit any liability, ever.
The fact that you gave them an empty box of the rat poison to take to the vet shows your honesty and transparency. In the future, it may not be the best idea to do so. Now, please wait for the neighbor's first step - we need to see what they claims are (if any).
On what basis?
Is your property fenced?
Then you can consider rejecting their claims and ask how is it possible that they dog accessed your property? Secondly, if you agree to contribute to the vet fees, ask for evidence from the vet to support their claim. It all depends on what kind of relationship you have with your neighbors.
Of course you are. Let me know how this develops. I am happy to help. In the meantime many thanks for using our service.
