Iona from Toronto, Ontario writes,

How much of the First Strike Soft Bait Rodenticide is dangerous to a 10 lb dog?

A pest control company put two units in our garden. Our dog picked up the corner of the package they ripped open. It has a tiny amount blue residue in it and I am pretty sure that she didn't chew it. Will this be a problem for her and should we give her something or call the vet?


In most cases, secondary poisoning is not going to be a problem unless the predatory animal eats many rodents that have succumbed to the effects of the First Strike Soft Bait Rodenticide. The exact amount of mice that must be eaten for the predatory animal to become sick will depend on the size and the health of the animal but usually they would need to consume near their own body weight of bait to get sick. We do recommend that you contact your vet if your dog is sick or shows signs that are abnormal. Please provide the vet with the MSDS for more information.
