Does Coumadin have rat poison in it?
Coumadin (warfarin) is the active ingredient in rat poison. That being said, Coumadin is dosed, for humans, in a manner which prevents blood clotting (especially for those at risk), and does not act as a poison at the therapeutic dosage level. (However, when rats ingest the high concentrations of warfarin in rat poison, they bleed to death, internally.)

Yes, There is rat poison in Meth! Along with other harmful things. Like: Brake Oil, Battery Acid, Paint Thinner, Iodine, Rock Salt, Gas, Drain Killer and many other bad things…! :)
Pretty bad, poison is quite a slow and painful death for rats.
If there were, A LOT of people would be in serious trouble.
Yes rats are becoming immune to common poison. You can read more about it in the article I found (see related link)
It's the other way around. Coumadin, long-time anticoagulant medication used by humans was applied as a rat toxin. The idea was that, a medication in a dosage harmless to huma…ns would prove fatal for rats, mostly because of comparative sizes: A dose for a 150lb human was a massive overdose for a 6oz. rat. And this worked for a while. However, rats evolved past this and now, a human-normal dose of coumadin is no longer toxic for rats. To address this we've gone on to "super-coumadin" for rats -- another anticoagulant, only this time the rat-lethal (or LD50) does is also acutely toxic to humans.
It is sweet to the taste.
Rat poison is usually an anticoagulant that is it is a chemical that stops blood from coagulating. So yes it should finish off (kill) an iguana if it eats enough of it.
While they are not poisonous (having no venom), wild rats (not pets) can carry a variety of diseases. Actually, those purchased in pet stores make very good pets. I had …one for a few years and he was just great.
yeas, they have a slow and painful death
Arsenic (especially in inorganic forms) is known as very poisonous from thousand years; see the link below. A little more... Note that arsenic is no longer a component …of rat toxins in any industrialized nation. The effects on the environment and on humans are far to dangerous and prevalent to allow this approach to remain legal, as once it was.
The poison Will get into their blood and clot it up that causes internal bleeding of the body witch causes the rat to explode.
It is very slow. But they ussally just fall asleep and do not wake up.
A few days. The poison thins their blood. They bleed internally and their organs fail.
The poison thins their blood, causing them to bleed through mucus membranes. The rat's blood pressure is lowered. The rat's blood gets to the point that the blood is too thin …to carry oxygen and they die.
Warfrain The same thing given people to thin their blood. Rat eats it, blood gets so thin it bleeds to death internally.
There are different classes of rat poison. One common type is the warfarin-class of poisons, which work to thin the blood. After consuming enough of the poison, the rat lo…ses the ability to clot its blood and it basically bleeds to death. Another type is a neurologic poison, which causes the rat to have seizures and die.
