Secondary poisoning is a result of a rodenticide having a delayed effect on non-target animals. An example would be if a rat ate the poison and died, then a cat ate the rat and died, then a bird ate the cat and died and so on.
None of the rodenticides on the market today have secondary poisoning effects. The EPA has done a good job of eliminating all the potentially harmful products. This has been the case for at least 30 years. Prior to that? We had some fairly toxic rodent baits. Not anymore.
