So what does the snail bait actually look like once it's been applied to a plant? My dog ingested some (and is now fine, thankfully), and I've retraced my steps from the day it happened, but I don't know what to look for.

I've been googling and googling, but haven't found any pictures of the actual bait -- just the brands and containers.

Thanks so much.

Depends on the brand and form... some brands make tan to yellowish pellets (look like some sort of rodent feed), some a flaky tan dust... I think one even makes both. The Iron Phosphate products can look nearly identical!
