The first step in treating any kind of oral poisoning is inducing vomiting to prevent adsorption into bloodstream, with supportive therapy including IV with electrolytes and sugars.
The seconds step would be applying active charcoal in the attempt to soak as much toxin as possible.
Even at homes, owners could apply these steps, but vomiting or charcoal shouldn't be applied in cases of seizures or bad condition of the dog.
