Thank you for that information. Tomcat makes a few different products with different ingredients. Are you able to see the ingredient name in this one? Is it bromethalin?

Thank you. This will be OK regarding any serious toxicity concern. The amount of the ingredient swallowed is not toxic and will not cause any problems of internal organ injury. Therefore, this is not an emergency and no immediate treatments are required. It is recommended to monitor for signs of vomiting and nausea such as excessive lip licking, drooling, or multiple attempts to swallow. Nausea is usually self-limiting and does not typically require treatment, but you may give an over-the-counter antacid such as 10 mg of famotidine (i.e. Pepcid AC) or omeprazole (i.e. Prilosec) if needed. If no signs are seen after 6 to 8 hours, then no further monitoring is necessary.

I am sorry about that. I know you were expecting a different price. I am unfortunately not able to answer that question because I do not have the information to give. Are you able to contact customer service again so they can explain it? The veterinarians such as myself are not given this information.
