1- Do you know like how many raisins per slice? 2- How long since he ate it? 3- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?

not a lot per slice maybe as much as 2 hrs ago no hydro perox. I am an 80 year old women just out of hospital on a walker - how high a risk if I am unable to do much. all mobile vets here do not work on

sundays - I already tried.

Friend, the lowest toxic dose for raisins in dogs ever reported is 0.11 oz/kg. This means that in a 40 lbs dog he would need to eat more than 2 ounces of raisins to be concern. As long as the amount of raisins in the bread he ate was below 2 ounces then this will not be a problem. 1 ounce of raisins is +/- 50 raisins. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
