We recommend contacting your veternarian immediately to discuss the effects your dog may have if they consumed any amount of First Strike Soft Bait Rodenticide. Product Label WARNING: TREATMENT FOR PET POISONING: If animal eats bait, call veterinarian at once. NOTE TO PHYSICIAN OR VETERINARIAN: Contains the anticoagulant difethialone. If swallowed, this material may reduce the clotting ability of blood and cause bleeding. For humans or animals ingesting bait and/or showing obvious poisoning symptoms (bleeding or prolonged prothrombin times), give Vitamin K1 intramuscularly or orally. Also for pets, if needed, check prothrombin time every 3 days until values return to normal (up to 30 days). In severe cases, blood transfusions may be needed.
