I would try to make him vomit to be safe.   Do you have any 3% hydrogen peroxide on hand that is not expired?

The dose of bromethalin she got is borderline over the toxic dose for a dog her size.

Put 1 teaspoon peroxide in a little milk or ice cream, get her to drink it, and then walk her for a minute.

This poison affects the nervous system, causing tremors, shaking, and at higher doses, seizures or coma.   There is no antidote but we can treat a dog if symptoms develop.

Thank you. If he does not vomit this time, how much more peroxide should we try?

Try another 1/2 teaspoon once more if he does not vomit in 20 minutes, or take him to a veterinarian to be monitored for signs of poisoning.
