Rats
We have noticed that we have rats. We want to put ratex in the roof for them. What would happen if my 2 x puppies found the dead rats & ate them? Would it affect them?

Usually if the dog ate one rat it would have little effect. If they ate numerous poisoned rats it could cause a problem. The rats must be coming in from outside. Can you find the hole/entrance and block it off?
