Where in NZ can you buy those huge bins of Talon? Tried Farmlands, Mitre 10 and Bunnings. They only stock the useless brands of Pestoff, Rentikill etc. I found a contact and they couriered them to me but unfortunately lost the email. Thankyou

Not sure about our cat as it always catches live rats and only eats the heads with no side effects. But our Corgi who is just a guts got into some bait, we noticed that quickly, had his stomach pumped out by the vet within an hour and he survived OK. The vet was of the opinion that he would not have survived if we had not acted quickly. Regards Vic Lansgford

With regards to your dog or cat, generally speaking there is a low risk of secondary poison if a dog or cat came into contact with a deceased rat due to the low level of bait in the system. A dog or cat would generally need to eat a few WHOLE blocks in order to be affected - a rat would only have consumed a few bites of a single block in order to be affected.

Having said that if at any time you think your dog or cat has come into contact with a poisoned rat it is always a good idea to take them to the vet for an antidote and to discuss it with your vet. Vitamin K is an antidote and the vet can give them an injection of this (or similar) to counteract the effects.

As with any rat and mouse baiting situation it is advisable to remove any dead or dying rats as you come across them to minimise this risk.
