Almonds are not toxic to dogs; there should be no problem, as long as there was no chocolate or raisins or artificial sweetener like xylitol in the milk.
Xylitol is very poisonous to dogs, but is mostly found in chewing gum.
Raisin toxicity is a weird one; most of the time dogs eat raisins, or grapes and have no problem, but sometimes it causes irreversible kidney failure, which is usually fatal. However, one or two raisins should not be a problem. Check the label of the milk to be sure that there is no artificial sweetener in it. If not, there should not be a problem.
If there were artificial sweeteners, it would not say that. If there were xylitol in it, it would be listed as an ingredient, so you should be fine and not have to do anything. If Rocket is not used to the almond milk, it might give him some gas or diarrhea, but I would expect nothing more than that, and probably not even that.
Just the slight chance of the above mentioned gas and diarrhea, but I doubt you will see even that.
Any other questions I can answer for you or Rocket?
If so, please ask away!
If not, please consider accepting my answer. Otherwise, the website does not pay me for answering your question. I hope you and Rocket have a good evening. Rebecca
Can I answer anything else for you?
That is the most likely reason for lesions around both eyes. It could have been an insect bite or sting, or a reaction to something he ate.
It could have been anything. If he has eaten Beggin Strips since then without reacting, then that is not the problem.
It is more likely to have been whatever he ate just before he broke out.
But a sting or insect bite would be high on my list of possibilites.
That is very consistent with an allergic reaction
Is he better now?
No. Again, a reaction to a food, or (even more likely) and insect bite or sting is what I would most suspect.
The only way to tell if it was the Beggin Strips is to give him one, and see if he reacts or not. That is really the only way to tell. However, I just think it is unlikely he would suddenly react to something he has eaten for a long time.
Usually food allergies are to specific ingredients, like beef, so any food containing beef would cause the reaction. Other common food allergies are wheat, corn, and soy. Dogs can also have allergies to multiple foods.
Glad to hear that!
Please consider accepting when we are done, so the website compensates me for chatting with you. Rocket has a good owner!
Way past my bedtime now, and my dog is begging to go out. Whether you accept or not, it has been a pleasure to chat with you. Thanks for the kind words. Rebecca
