    I realize that coumadin/warfarin mousebaits are lethal to dogs, but what is the danger if a dog eats a dead mouse killed by the stuff? Thanks. HH

    Called pass through poisoning. My neighbors a pest control guy and he says its not an issue unless the dog eats a hell of alot of mice.

    I'd imagine it would have been only one or two dead mice. I'm only asking since the scurrying noises at night have stopped after planting the baits and I've yet to find a dead mouse with this new GSD. All of our previous dogs wouldn't touch a dead mouse. HH

    I don't think it's very common, but it can happen.

    Happened to our dog. That was an unpleasant vet bill. ;)

    I've often speculated that rather than getting sick from what the mouse/chipmunk had ingested, perhaps the rodent stepped in the poison or something.

    One serving of a dead mouse killed by poison isn't an issue for a average sized dog. I'd let it pass & wouldn't go looking for a $200 Vet bill.

    I used to work in pest control. Unless your dog is the size of a Chihuahua, don't worry about.
