    Everyone.... if you have animals, plese make sure that any chemicals or poison is well hidden. I had left some rat poison out. I had it well hidden covered in a small pipe under some wood.. but still my little one managed to eat it. Good job i saw this, i took my pup directly to the vet and on the way kept sticking my fingers down its throat... to make it sick.. it worked thank god. I was lucky. Just a note for everyone.

    Be doubly aware if you use the little blocks of poison. I had mine well hidden away but the rats dragged them out and left them where the dogs could get them. So long as they are not constantly eating it then a preventative course of vitamin K tablets should do the trick.

    Slug pellets are another one to be very careful with. Ive seen a dog die after eating them, and its horrendous.

    I dont use any form of poisons in or around my property. No plant sprays, nothing. I just wont risk my animals lives.
