You may have seen memes about dogs and Raid spray and wondered if it was really true that your pup would suddenly act like a person after lapping up the bug-repelling powerhouse.
Well, we have bad news/good news for you: The good news is that your dog won’t turn into a human being after eating Raid.
The bad news is that ingesting Raid can be very dangerous to your pet’s health.
What would happen if a dog licked raid spray?
If a dog licked the spray, it would need to ingest a considerable amount of the chemical for poisoning to occur.
The amount of poison ingested would depend on how many raids were sprayed and how long the dog licked it.
It’s important to know that different dogs are affected by chemicals differently, which means that each dog may react differently from another dog in this situation.
It will take anywhere from 15 minutes to 4 hours for symptoms to appear in your pet after ingestion.
These could include vomiting, diarrhea, drooling, or foaming at the mouth—all signs that something is wrong with your pup!
If you find these symptoms in your pet after they have been exposed to pest control products like Raid or other pesticides; contact your vet right away so they can begin treatment.
Is raid toxic to dogs?
Raid is a common household insecticide.
It’s safe to use around humans, but how does it affect dogs? The short answer is: it depends on the type of insecticide, the amount, and the health of your dog.
The EPA classifies many active ingredients found in pesticides as low toxicity (they are considered less harmful than chemicals such as furans).
The EPA also recognizes that some strains of certain species are more susceptible than others – for example, dogs can be affected by poisonings while cats are not affected at all or only mildly affected by some poisons.
Generally, however, if you have an indoor cat or small dog that has been exposed to a large amount of Raid (such as through licking), vomiting may occur within an hour or two after exposure, and seizures may follow within 24 hours.
If this happens to call your veterinarian immediately because sometimes animals can recover from pesticide poisoning with veterinary treatment.
However, there is always risk involved when treating animals so see if there was any information printed on the label first before taking action!
Don’t despair! If you think your pup has licked some Raid, simply go to the veterinarian as quickly as possible.
With enough medical attention, your dog should be fine.
If you are worried about bugs invading your home, there are other alternatives to harmful sprays like Raid that can protect both your family and your pets.
