Prevention is the key

It is safest to avoid the use of all slug and snail bait if you have a pet. If your council allows it, consider chickens and ducks as they are great natural snail and slug controllers!

If you do need to use slug and snail bait ALWAYS keep it out of your pet’s reach (remember that dogs, in particular, are good at seeking it out).

And finally, be careful if you are visiting a friends or neighbour’s garden with your pet as you might not realise they have used snail bait. It’s always best to keep your dog on a leash until you are confident the area is safe.

The warm season brings about plenty of hazards for our pets and one, in particular, is the use of snail and slug bait in the garden. There is a lot of misinformation out there including the idea that there are brands available that are safe for pets. This is not the case and these ‘pet-friendly’ products can still be dangerous.


Is snail bait poisonous to dogs?


Ingestion can be fatal and it’s important to know what to watch out for and how you can prevent poisoning. Dogs seem to be more prone as they are scavengers and love to eat things they shouldn’t. Cats can be a bit pickier when it comes to what they eat but are still at risk.

There are 3 types of snail baits:

  • Metaldehyde- green pellets
  • Methiocarb – blue pellets
  • Iron EDTA (Multiguard)- brown/yellow pelletsexample:
  1. Metaldehyde – green pellets
  2. Methiocarb – blue pellets

These are the most dangerous and they act on the nervous system causing increased stimulation and can be rapidly fatal if immediate veterinary treatment is not given.

While the Multiguard (below) contain a bitterant but these act ONLY as a deterrent and many dogs will still eat these pellets.

  1. Iron EDTA (Multiguard) – brown/yellow pellets

These are also marketed as ‘pet-friendly’ & are particularly dangerous if ingested in large amounts.
The iron ingestion may cause gastrointestinal issues such as vomiting and diarrhoea but if enough is eaten, the iron can also cause damage to the liver, spleen, heart, kidneys or brain and even lead to organ failure and death.  If your pet ingests this type of slug or snail bait, it’s best to seek veterinary advice.



The main signs of snail bait poisoning include:

The notes below relate to metaldehyde and methiocarb toxicity.


  • Excessive drooling
  • Depression or restlessness
  • Rapid heart rate & panting
  • Vomiting & diarrhoea
  • Muscle tremors
  • Seizures
  • Death if not treated
  • Animals that survive may develop liver failure days later


  • Based on history of ingestion or owners finding eaten packaging.
  • Clinical signs suggestive of poisoning
  • Blood tests may be performed to assess organ damage and to rule out other causes


What to do if your dog eats snail bait

If your pet has ingested snail bait (or even if you just think there is a slight possibility your pet has ingested snail bait), you should seek veterinary advice immediately.

Bring the packaging with you if you can so your veterinarian knows what was ingested.

The sooner your pet visits a veterinarian, the better the outcome is likely to be. Your pet will need to be made to vomit to help remove as much of the contents from the stomach as possible.

In some cases, your pet may require and an anaesthetic so that the gastric contents can be washed out via a stomach flush and an enema given to reduce toxicity as much as possible. Supportive care in the form of intravenous fluids may be needed as well as medications to help with muscle tremors and seizures.


Snail baits can come in the form of pellets, granules, liquids or powders.

The poison is mixed with molasses, apple, rice, soybeans or oats. This mixture is what makes it palatable to snails, but it is also what makes it tasty for dogs and cats.

Even so called “pet friendly” products are dangerous for animals.

Metaldehyde and methiocarb act on the animals nervous system causing increased stimulation, and can be fatal if immediate veterinary treatment is not given.

Multiguard is less toxic than the other 2 snail baits, but iron toxicity can still be fatal and therefore asisstance  is recommended even if a small amount has been eaten. Iron toxicity can cause gastrointestinal signs such as vomiting and diarrhoea, or may cause damage to the liver, spleen, heart, kidneys or brain.


Conventional Assistance

Supportive care including fluid therapy is given. In most cases the animal will require a gastric lavage (stomach flush) and an enema under general anaesthesia.


If prompt, aggressive assistance is given, the prognosis is good. There can be varying factors that may also influence recovery, including current health of animal, age, amount of poison ingested and time when assistance is given.

Signs may last for a number of days, and hospitalisation will be required for severe poisoning.

Follow up and aftercare

Animals may go home with a course of activated charcoal, which helps to absorb any remaining poison in the system. Repeat blood tests may be performed to check for any liver damage.


Remember    –    Don’t use snail baits if you have pets or small children

If you must use snail bait, please keep the packaging locked away where pets cannot get access. Don’t allow your pet into areas where it is used.  If you suspect your pet has ingested snail bait, seek IMMEDIATE veterinary treatment.

It is important to bring any packaging to the clinic with your pet, so that your vet can determine the active ingredients and what type of poison was used.

General Dosing and Instructions Guide

For all species, size, and ages.


(a) “HOMEOPATHICS”are sold in either a clear liquid or tiny white pills or granules – both have no odour or taste)

Easy “application dosing” for all species:

  • Homeopathic DROPS (clear liquid) DRIP or APPLY 3 to 4 drops, pat into fur/skin with bottom of bottle. i.e. back of shoulder blades (not orally) which is regarded as one dose for all size species and ages. Note: Liquid homeopathics are more suited for feline, toy dog, fish, birds and other small species
  • Homeopathic PILLS (white pills) crush a pill (or whole) and add to gum/pouch of mouth to dissolve in saliva. Does not need to swallow it.
  • Homeopathic GRANULES (white grain) and a small light sprinkle or a pinch to meals, or stir into water trough or bowl.
    Casual repeat dosing can add to water bowl or feed dish or water trough for wildlife or farm animals.

Refer to Bottle Label for suggested frequencies repeat dosing needed per day.
the rule is one must “repeat a dose” more frequently with less time in between each application dose, which is more important than the amount given each time. Repeat application will provide

faster action.


(b) “HERBAL MEDICINES ” (brown liquid – strong odour & tasting)
”Application dosing” for all species and sizes:
Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat : add herbal drops (as recommended on bottle label) to some (unsweetened apple sauce or apple juice) for canines and oral syringe side of mouth. Can add other vitamins (crushed) Alkaline green powders etc. to mix.

Refer to Bottle Label for amount of drops per species size. e.g 60 drops = 1 teaspoon

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herbal solutions and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)


Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix.
Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid)
Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.

DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.

What I do for example: If i was needing to give herbal solutions and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to 1/2 cup of boiled hot water to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …. smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)

Slippery Elm Powder

If needing to add or use Slippery Elm powder

FOR CONDITIONS like …. diarrhea, stomach ulcers, or sore inflamed mouth or mouth ulcers, constipation, or IBS (i.e. colitis), plus it can also been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids.

CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well.
~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it.
