  • Call the Poison Control Center, and have the packet of Rat Poison handy. They'll tell you what you need to do. (Sometimes only drinking milk is enough, but other kinds requires pumping the stomach).

  • Do you HAVE rat poison? And how would he KNOW that he ate it? CAn he read the lable? WOw.
    If that is really what you think he meant...TAKE HIM to the ER.

  • Call poison control ASAP

  • my mom was watching my son once and wondered if he ate some because he came out holding the box. it was Decon and he loved TicTac candy so we thought he might try them because they looked similar. I took him in and they said he had nothing in his mouth and showed no signs of feeling sick so it was no worry. they said it takes ALOT to make a person sick and it works so well on mice because they are so small. call poison control to be safe or take him to the e.r. since you dont know if he did or how much. if he is not vomiting or acting odd they probably wont do anything for him.
