Update on Ant Bait
Here's more of what I've learned about the ant bait. The manufacturers make the bait smell like peanut butter, which makes it attractive to dogs. The main ingredient is Indoxacarb 0.05%. After Roma was sick twice this afternoon, I tried to call Animal Poison Control, which is run by the ASPCA, but they ask for a donation of $60.00. I am still convinced that Roma did not eat enough to do more than make her queasy, so I am waiting and watching tonight. Again, she seems her normal self; in fact, she's a bit put out that I have not fed her yet this evening. I did not want to feed her until I was sure she would not be sick again. Gross. I'm sorry. But please watch out for these ant baits at the Park. They have caused me so much needless worry.
