How to Use Ratx (r) Pellets

RatX(r), an effective method for exterminating rats and mice, is very simple. RatX(r) attracts rodents to its unique formula, unlike rodent poisons or traps. The following steps will help you to apply it. Step 2: Pour the correct amount RatX(r), in small bags made of cling wrap. Pre-portioned RatX® Ready Trays can be used to save time. 40-60 grams or 1-1/2 to 2 ounces are needed for Rats; 10-15 grams or 1/3 to 1/2 ounces are needed for Mice. Step 3 – Place bait trays and pre-packed RatX(r), ReadyTrays near areas of rodent activity. For maximum effectiveness, place RatX(r) near holes and runs. Cling wrap bags can be used to store the RatX(r), Pellets if there are no Ready Trays or bait trays. Step 4: Keep pellets dry (wetness reduces effectiveness) and continue to bait until rat and/or mouse activity ceases. Never underestimate the rodent population on your land. You can continue refilling the tank until all pellets are gone. Fecal droppings with a bleached color that is up to 3 times greater than usual rat and mouse droppings are an indicator of consumption.

How to Treat Rat Poisoning Ingestion

Common household poisons, also called rodenticides or rat poisons, are made up of many active ingredients and are extremely toxic for mammals.

You should avoid contact with these chemicals. Although some rodenticides might cause mild irritation when they are touched, it is very dangerous to inhale them. Ingestion can cause paralysis, heart failure, death, or organ failure.

Even though symptoms may appear within hours and days, it is possible to not feel any effects.

It is important to immediately inform poison control if someone suspects that they have inhaled rat poison. Poison control should be contacted immediately at 1-800-222-1222. Ingestion of rat poison can also pose a serious threat to pets. Call 1-888-426-44435 to reach the Animal Poison Control Center.

How can Rat Poison be explained?

Anticoagulants (blood thinners) are found in most rat poison products, and are responsible for more than 50% of rodenticide-related calls to the Poison Control Center each year.

Warfarin, an anticoagulant for rats poison that was first introduced in 1950, went on sale. It was quickly repelled by rats, so “superwarfarin” anticoagulant rat poisons were developed. They have a longer lasting effect and are 100 times less toxic.

These superwarfarins, bromadiolone or brodifacoum, are what are most commonly responsible for poisoning rodenticide-infected humans.

Coumadin

Jantoven) are common medications prescribed to patients at higher risk for stroke and heart attack. Even though it’s designed to reduce blood clot risk, the use of this medication can lead to severe bleeding.

Thallium sulfate is another active ingredient formerly used in rat poison that is colorless and odorless. In the United States, Thallium sulfate was prohibited in 1972 because of numerous accidental exposures.

Thallium poisoning has been reported, though this is exceedingly rare. This happens mainly from old rodenticides. It is quickly absorbed by the skin and gastrointestinal system and can cause death if it is exposed to even 8 mg (mg).

What is Rat Poison?

The majority of rodenticides currently on the market contain anticoagulant agents. When ingested the poison stops blood clots forming and causes excessive internal bleeding.

Although some rat poisons kill within minutes, others can take several exposures. For death to occur, it usually takes four to 14 days for a rodent to eat them.

Secondary poisoning has a wide range of effects on wildlife, pets and farm animals. A rodenticide-treated mouse is poisoned and a pet cat may eat it.

Here is the way they work.

Internal bleeding may occur after anticoagulants are used. This can go undetected for many days. Signs of poisoning in pets include trouble breathing, lethargy, seizures, shaking, bloody stool, bleeding from the gums, and abdominal swelling.

Bromethalin can cause cell death within the central and peripheral nervous system. The effects of bromethalin on pets can include vomiting, seizures, loss control, and coma. These symptoms may occur between 8-12 hours and the time that they are exposed.

Cholecalciferol is a form of vitamin D that leads to calcium toxicity, kidney damage, and heart failure. The signs of poisoning include nausea, vomiting and frequent urination. These symptoms can occur between 12 and 36 hours following exposure.

Symptoms Of Human Poisoning

Rat poisoning is not a sudden symptom. There may be no symptoms in certain cases. People may misunderstand their symptoms if they do not realize that they have inhaled rat poison. Symptoms to be aware of include:

Anticoagulants: Incontinence bleeding that occurs from the gums, nose or skin. Signs of internal bleeding include lightheadedness shortness of breath , pain, nausea, and vomiting. Symptoms may not be obvious, especially in children.

Bromethalin: A disorder of the stomach or mental condition. The signs of cerebral edema are visual, behavioral, and mental disturbances such as headaches.

Extreme thirst, dehydration, and increased urine production are all possible. Exposed to excess calcium can lead to kidney damage and even heart attack if it isn’t addressed.

Zinc Phosphide: Convulsions, vomiting, anxiety, hyperexcitability, coma, shortness and breathlessness, convulsions, chills, seizures, nausea, vomiting, headaches. Breathing in zinc phosphide may cause anxiety or breathing difficulties.

Strychnine: Muscle spasms and seizures . In a matter of minutes, symptoms could begin and escalate until your breathing becomes impaired.

Certain rat poison products may contain blue dye to help you quickly determine if a pet or child touched them.

It is possible to get treatment

The first thing to do is not try to poison your loved ones with rat poison. Get help from a professional poison control team immediately.

Rodenticide products have labels that include instructions for first aid. Read them carefully before opening the package.

An anticoagulant with bromadiolone called CONTRAC All Weather, BLOX for instance has the following information on its product label:

Poison Control should be called first if the poison is ingested. After that, you can drink water, if possible. Except as directed by your doctor or poison control, vomiting is never something you should attempt.

It is important to wash any clothing or skin that has been exposed.

If your eyes have become open to the sun, rinse them well with warm water. Next, brush your teeth and then call Poison Control.

A Poison Control expert may recommend that you go to the hospital. Expect to get intravenous (or oral) medication.

Prevention

Rodenticide bait has to be sold as blocks, not pellets or loose bait. It must also be kept in a secure bait station. It is best to get rid of old forms of rat poison from your home and buy a newer, safer version.

You should seal all cracks, crevices, and holes in walls, windows, doors, and garbage cans. You can reduce the possibility of mice living in your yard by trimming the vegetation.

Don’t leave any food wrappers out in the home. Take away all food leftovers and dispose of them outside.

Rodenticide should always be stored in cool, dry places that are completely out of reach of children and pets. Do not allow rat poison to be used in your kitchen.

Use rat traps if possible. Placing traps near appliances and other inaccessible areas is a good idea. You don’t need to scatter traps throughout a living area as house mice will rarely leave their nests. They can be placed within 10-12 feet of the nest.

Do you want to bring rodenticide in your home? You should never resort to rat poison. You can also use non-toxic, effective repellents like:

Fresh Cab Botanical Rodent Repellent: This EPA registered natural repellent contains balsam fir oil as well as fragrance oil. The oil is also safe to use indoors and outdoors.

Mouse And Rat Poison: Rodenticides Poisonous To Dogs & Cats

Liz Greenlee CVT/EMT and Ahna Brutelag, DVM. Was your dog poisoned by rat poison? Pet Poison Helpline gets dozens of calls daily from dog owners (and occasionally cat owners) saying “My dog ate rat poison!” Poisoning from rodenticides (mouse and rat poisons) is one of the most common types of toxicities managed by Pet Poison Helpline. This poison can be easily obtained and applied anywhere that rodents may be present, such as in houses, parks, wildlife areas, stables, homes and farms. Many types of poisons for mice and rats are available, including green, blue or tan, as well as red. There are many different types of poisons for mice and rats, including pellets, bait blocks, grains-based baits, as well as formulations. Some poisons may be contained in similar products with similar names. Thus, if a dog (or rarer, a cat) ingests mouse or rat poison, accurate identification of the active ingredient is crucial as this will determine the risk of poisoning and the need for treatment. If the active component is not easily visible on the label, another identification indicator is the EPA registration (EPA Reg. No.) (No.)

Here are the most commonly found active ingredients in rat and mouse poisons. They also have their mechanisms of action and toxic doses. Your veterinarian should be contacted immediately after a cat or dog has ingested one of these poisons. It is possible to save the life of your dog and avoid costly treatment by taking swift action.

Laacs are long-acting anticoagulants

Long-acting anticoagulants are well known and most commonly used in mouse and rat poisons.

Mechanism of Action: This poison causes blood to clot, which can lead to internal bleeding. The long-acting anticoagulants are similar to blood thinners like Coumadin (r) or warfarin(r). It usually takes between 3-5 days for signs to appear in dogs and cats after they ingest LAACs. If the pet has been regularly exposed, symptoms of poisoning might be more rapid.

The most common signs of poisoning include: Lethargy and exercise intolerance; coughing; difficulty breathing due to blood clots in the lungs; weakness; pale gums. Less common signs include vomiting, diarrhea (with or without blood), nose bleeds, bruising, bloody urine, swollen joints, inappetance, and bleeding from the gums.

Vitamin K1 can be prescribed as an antidote for the specific species of rodent poison. Over-the-counter medications or food with high vitamin K content will not be sufficient substitutes. Vitamin K1 should be administered for 30 days to most dogs. Two days after the last dose of Vitamin K1 is administered, a blood clotting test called a prothrombin (PT) should be checked to make sure the clotting is normal.

Threat: Between active ingredients, the dose required to poison from LAACs can vary greatly. For some types of LAACs, like brodifacoum it takes very little to cause poisoning. The safety margin for some types is greater (e.g. Brodifacoum), but it can take more to cause poisoning. A dog’s health and age may also influence the likelihood that they will be poisoned. Dogs that have underlying liver diseases or gastro-intestinal problems, along with the very young and very old, may be more vulnerable. LAACs are not as effective on certain species. Cats are the exception. Dogs can, however, be very sensitive and require frequent veterinary attention.

Cholecalciferol is Vitamin D3

This is one of the most dangerous mouse and rat poisons on the market and seems to be gaining in popularity.

Mechanism of action: This poison causes a very high calcium and phosphorus level in the body, resulting in severe, acute kidney failure.

Common signs of poisoning: Increased thirst and urination, weakness, lethargy, a decreased appetite, and halitosis (“uremic” breath). Acute kidney failure develops 2-3 days after ingestion. The body may have already suffered severe, permanent injury by then.

It is possible to get treatment but not an antidote. The only treatment is to administer aggressive IV fluids, which can last for up to two days, along with specific drugs, such as steroids and calcitonin to reduce the amount of calcium in your body. It is common to need frequent blood tests (calcium, potassium, and kidney values), for 2-6 weeks after ingesting the poison.

Threat: Cholecalciferol has a very narrow margin of safety. Small ingestions of this poison may be fatal for any dog or cat; thus, almost all ingestions must be treated quickly and appropriately to prevent kidney failure.
