Just a little public service announcement for everybody this afternoon that I didn't want to post yesterday on Fathers Day. If you must use bromethalin based rodent poison like Tomcat Brand for rat or mice problems on your property don't be cheap and clueless and just sprinkle the green cubes in your yard, actually buy the bait traps so you don't kill any kids, cats, dogs, mountain lions, bob cats, and or coyotes in your neighborhood. The cubes are made to smell and taste delicious and somebody who lives at the start of the hiking trail near me poisoned my dog Fuzzy accidentally by not loading them in the the child proof/dog proof bait traps. I'm hoping my dog is going to be fine due to his emergency vet visit, but he may develop symptoms 3-5 days after eating the poison. Ingestion of bromethalin can lead to an increased pressure of cerebrospinal fluid (the liquid within the membrane of the skull that the brain essentially floats in) and cerebral edema (the accumulation of excess water in the brain). A variety of neurological-based symptoms can result from this, including muscle tremors, seizures, and impaired movement.
