1-19394278: A reporter called on 08/03/2009 to report the exposure of a dog to a rodenticide containing the active ingredient Brodifacoum. According to the reporter, a customer called him to report that his dog ingested the product the week prior to the report and died that same week. The details regarding the exposure (amount ingested, symptoms, time frame, whether treatment was initiated, etc.) were unknown. The dog had been buried. The reporter was advised of the toxic dose for a 70 pound dog (14 grams or less than 1 tablespoon). The reporter was also advised that symptoms take 2-5 days to develop following ingestion. The product is a blood thinner and may result in bleeding which may manifest as blood in the stool, urine, from the nose, etc. Affected animals may also just appear lethargic. Untreated bleeding may result in death. The reporter was advised that the antidote, vitamin K1, is recommended in cases of potentially toxic exposures. No further information was obtained.
