- Minimize the time you must leash or confine your dog by using bromethalin, a single-dose neurotoxin that usually kills rodents within 24 to 36 hours of consumption.
- Calculate the lethal dose for your dog, and adjust the amount of bait you drop accordingly. The minimum lethal dose of bromethalic bait for a dog is 25 grams per kilogram of body weight, meaning that a 5 kg dog would have to consume five to six packages of bait to reach toxic levels.
- Monitor your dog carefully if you have recently set out rat poison. If you suspect your dog may have ingested poison--symptoms include muscle tremors, excitability, running fits and seizures--induce vomiting immediately, before the poison is absorbed.
How to Poison Rats Witihout Poisoning a Dog
There no such thing as a rat poison that is completely safe for dogs.
Poisons including warfarin, brodifacoum, bromadiaoline, difacinone and difethialone kill rats by interfering with their blood clotting; they act in a similar way on dogs, resulting in bleeding, seizures, or damage to the kidneys and other vital organs.
Instead, consider using bromethalin.
As a dog owner, you should place the poison only in places that are inaccessible to your pet, or consider leashing it.
