Jane et al:

I have heard that there are some rodenticides that don't allow secondary 
poisoning such as was described  in the death of the borzoi.  I think it 
may be zinc phosphide that reacts with the  acid in the gastrointestinal 
tract and releases  a gas that poisons the rodent.  The gas does its 
thing and then moves on and secondary poisoning is not a problem.  Of  
course I would be hesitant about this until I had researched it a bit more.

I will do a bit of looking and report back
