My 9 pound shih tzu just ate about half of a mini poppy seed

Customer Question

Hello
JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?
Customer: My 9 pound shih tzu just ate about half of a mini poppy seed muffin. Should I concerned?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?
Customer: As of right now he is still playing
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

In regards ***** ***** question, this is no worry here for your lad. The small volume of poppy seeds on the bagel will cause no harm and we'd expect him to be just fine. Of course, if he does have a sensitive stomach and you see any upset, you can plan to put him on a light diet for a few days. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep his stomach settled.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
