Hello again and thanks for waiting.I have worked out an answer for you below ...1. Good news, just two raisins will not be toxic to a 27 pound dog, there is no need for you to do anything in this sort of situation, this is not going to affect him. He should be just fine ... 2. The reason I say this is that while raisins can be a significant toxin to dogs the lowest documented toxic raisin dose in the dog I can find is 0.1 oz per kg of the dogs body weight.3. A 27 pound dog weighs 12.27 kg so you would only be worried if it ate 1.3 ozs or more of raisins and there are on average around 25 raisins per ounce which works out 32 raisins in your case. From this you can see that most dogs that suffer raisin related problems have eaten very much larger amounts than your one did. I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.Regards, ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
