Observable signs of poisoning do not occur until several days after
exposure. The dog may become weak and pale from blood loss, have nose
bleeds, vomit blood, experience rectal bleeding, begin coughing up blood
and may develop bruises beneath the skin or have hemorrhages beneath the
gums. The dog may be found dead from bleeding into the chest or abdomen.
Note - these symptoms may show up sooner in the case of rodent poisoning
of the 2nd generation and long lasting anticoagulant. If you find these
symptoms and you believe that your dog has recently ingested an
anticoagulant rodent poison, follow the treatment suggested.
If at all possible, bring in the container for product
identification. This is extremely important because treatment depends on
whether or not the poison was a 1st or 2nd generation anticoagulant.
With observed or suspected recent ingestion of rodent poison, induce
vomiting and immediately seek veterinary help.
