Lisa, the lowest toxic dose for raisin ingestion in dogs is 0.11oz/kg. This means that Zoey would need to ingest at least 3.7 ounces to be concern about toxicity. 6 raisins is not going to be toxic or produce any symptoms. So, her lethargy or not willing to go for her walk is Not related to the ingestion of raisins. As far as what is the cause it will be difficult for me to determine the exact underlying without a hands on examination at least. You see, lethargy can be caused by almost any disease that affects a dog. I would recommend you observe her for tonight, if she continues being lethargic tomorrow have her examined by family veterinarian.
