DottieDottie, a delightful ‘Morky’ (Maltese Cross Yorkshire Terrier) puppy had to visit the surgery recently for fear she had eaten some rat bait. She was walking on farmland and was found nosing around in a box of blue granules. In case she had eaten some of the potentially fatal anticoagulant that is used in most rat baits, we injected her with a drug to make her vomit, which did indeed prove she has eaten some of the deadly poison. She was also given some Vitamin K1 to try and counteract the effect of any granules she might have already absorbed into her system, and follow up blood tests were carried over the following week to monitor her progress. A classic example of prevention better than cure!
