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.


  1. I'm so sorry for poor Roma--and poor you! I'm glad she's feeling like her old self and hope you get to take a much-deserved rest.

  2. Wow - they try to wring 60 bucks out of you while you're making a desperate phone call to see if your precious pet is in danger? Sounds like they need to get more creative with funding this service.

    So glad that R is suffering no ill effects!
