Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian. Are you wondering if poppy seeds are poisonous to dogs? How much is a small amount? A teaspoon? Tablespoon? Anything else eaten with it?

Thank you for that information. The amount of poppy seeds that may be accidentally eaten on rolls / buns wouldn't be of concern for a dog of their size eating them. They shouldn't have any issues from this. If one had a more sensitive stomach, then the possibility of some diarrhea may be there purely from eating something that is just different from the normal diet. A small amount like this for dogs their size wouldn't get me worried.
