    Over a week ago I found a soggy D con rat killer bait in the middle of the living room floor. Becky had found it and had been chewing on it. That stuff causes kidney damage (the animal won't drink water and will dehydrate) along with internal bleeding.

    To keep water in her I mixed 1/3 cup of water with her favorite food about 4 times a day to keep her kidneys flushed. I got some vitamin K from the vet to stop the internal bleeding. She was on this regiment for about 7 days. Then she began drinking a lot of water on her own.

    Now she is out of the woods and back to her demanding self again. It's like being married again. Nag nag nag. She acts like a two year old on steroids wearing a puppy costume.

    Great! Looks happy and healthy. I had a dog when I was a kid that died from eating rat poison that was outside. Found out when I called home from school. Consolation was my friends hot older sister saw me crying and gave me a hug. Glad your dog pulled through.

    When I saw the post I thought Jeff Beck put a new record out.

    Glad it worked out.

    Please put out traps and forget the poison. Owls do an excellent job of keeping rats and mice controlled as they wander at night, but the owls die bad deaths when they eat a poisoned rodent that's out in the open looking for water.

    I'd never use or keep rat poison around.
