Hello I am Dr RB... Onions are highly toxic to dogs causing a hemolysis or bursting of the red blood cells. This results in severe anemia. My strong recommendation is that you take Satis to your veterinarian RIGHT AWAY so they can do blood work to assess if any anemia is present and give her the appropriate care, most definitely intravenous fluids to flush her blood stream of toxins as well as any other supportive care she may need. I hope this advice helps you..
