Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.
I am so glad that you were able to induce vomiting so quickly. This was probably all that needed to be done & your pug will be fine. Taking her to a vet was an excellent step. Do you know what treatments were initiated there?
OK, great. I will assume no abnormalities were noted with the bloodwork ( CBC & chem panel ) & the x-ray should have been completely normal, too. So, administering the charcoal, sucralfate & giving the zantac should take care of any residual discomfort from both the raisin ingestion & therapeutic vomiting. Everything will be fine. Since raisins can cause significant kidney damage, just observe your pet for the next several days for any additional vomiting, lethargy, loss of appetite or increase in water intake, but I am quite sure that your prompt action was curative & your girl will be fine. If you wanted to be absolutely sure, you could have the chemistry repeated on Monday, but if your girl is acting her cheerful self, then this would probably be overkill. Your veterinarian did all the right things.
Relax & have a good weekend.
You are so welcome. But remember, you had the presence to induce vomiting as soon as you realized what happened. You are the hero here.
