Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

I am happy to tell you that eating 2 brazil nuts will not be harmful. These nutsare very high in selenium which can cause a problem if your dog will be eating these on a daily basis for a long time in the future. However one single ingestion of a couple of nuts will not cause any problems. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions. Dr. Dan
