You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.
How much does Dakota weigh, please?
70 lbs = ~33 kg. He would have needed to ingest over 5 ounces of onions to intoxicate himself.
He didn't and so will remain safe.
He didn't and so will remain safe. It takes 5 grams of onions/kg of body weight to intoxicate a dog with onions. 165 grams is a bit over 5 ounces.
Eating anything unusual can cause GI distress.
He may be crampy but not poisoned. Onions cause an anemia in 2-3 days post-ingestion.
