My german shepherd pup ate a little bit of dried lemon and garlic seasoning from the dirt while I was cooking on the grill. He threw it up, then ate all of his food. Is he in danger?

Hello again I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. My experience is that Finn will not be in any danger from this sort of incident, there is nothing there which will be toxic in those sorts of small quantities, he may however have a mild transient episode of vomiting and / or diarrhoea { As he has had } but the chances are that he will then quickly return to normal. The milk was a good idea by the way ... 2. All you need to do now is just to keep an eye on him, however I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Finn's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further Regards, ***** ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
