Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Since the toxicity risk of raisins varies by case and can lead to kidney failure, it is best to address this urgently. If he has just had this, you could take him to the vet so they can induce vomiting there. Otherwise, if there is any delay here, you can try to induce vomiting at home by administering 3% hydrogen peroxide orally at a dose of 1ml per pound. (2 teaspoons per 10 pounds of body weight). You can give it via dropper, syringe, turkey baster – we just want to get it in. After giving this orally, move the abdomen around or get your wee one walking about to get things mixing. This should usually lead to vomiting. If it is unsuccessful after 10 minutes then it can be repeated twice more. And if we still have no vomiting, then again you'd need to consider seeing your local vet so that apomorhpine (a very strong injectable emetic) can be administered just get this out of the stomach and avoid any adverse issues.

Overall, since the toxin in raisins isn't actually known and there is no set "risk dose", we always need to be proactive in these cases. So, we do either need to induce vomiting now or have him to the vet urgently so they can do so to get this back and avoid any harm to his kidneys.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
