    I was fortunate enough to see my dog exiting the cellar one day~I had just left the door open for a minute as I carried things back and forth~ and I just knew he had been in there eating the JustOneBite. The bar was gone and the dog that will eat anything was caught leaving the scene.

    Dosed him immediately with hydrogen peroxide and watched him heave the whole thing out on the ground...then vomit everything he had eaten since a small pup and dry heave the rest of the day after that.

    I felt sorry for the poor guy but I was sure glad I had seen him leaving that cellar and thought to look for that bar of poison.

    Great way to keep dogs away from the poison.

    Whats important if you have pets is to use the pellet form , the bars the rats can carry off, leaving them where pets can get to.

    DOGS! I had to dose DH's dog with hydrogen peroxide when he ate daffodil bulbs. Your description of how well it worked caused me to chuckle in a knowing way! Yep same for Will. :sick

    When a trap goes missing I think it is a rat or squirrel that has been caught.

    Snap traps here. Then, I know I caught one and the hens get some chicken football training. They have to be dead though. If it's alive.....them birds act like...chickens :barnie
