G'day Marian,
Firstly I wish you the best of luck.
Liquid activated charcoal is a good starting dosage remedy? if he's an adult Tawny then as much as you can orally feed him.
If you are sure it's poisoning? then:
Re: Poisoning

Symptoms may include vomiting, convulsions and paralysis. For all of the above, ongoing observation and treatment for shock may be required and you should consult your vet as soon as possible.
This may be the only way to get liquid activated charcoal?
If the animal's condition remains stable, or its condition improves, appropriate food should be made available that is suitable for the animal's stage of development and species.
