Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Can you give me an idea like how many raisins were in the piece of bread she ate?
2- How much does Rivi weigh?
3- How long since she ate it?
4- How much does she weigh?
5- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?
1- How many ounces was the box?
2- Any symptoms?
Raisins are toxic to dogs as well, if you tell me the amount in ounces she ate of both the chocolate and raisins so that I can calculate a toxic dose.
What type of chocolate (dark, milk, etc.)?
4 ounces of chocolate or raisins?
Friend, I am going to opt out so another expert can help you. I am sorry, I can not provide an answer with the information provided.
Hi there- I am Dr. Kane, and I can continue to try and help you out here with Rivi. How is she doing? Any abnormal symptoms at this time?
Sorry- I just noticed you already stated to Dr. Peter that she seems fine. Fortunately, the amount of chocolate in the raisinettes is unlikely to cause a problem for her. I am more worried about the raisins. The toxic dose is anywhere between 0.18 to 0.48 oz/lb. Rivi ate 4 oz of raisinettes. The majority of of that 4 oz is raisin, with a smaller amount of chocolate. So let's assume the weight of the raisins is somewhere between 3 to 3.75 oz. The toxic dose for a dog of Rivi's weight is 3.06 to 8.16 oz. Therefore, she is right on the cusp of this potentially being a toxic amount for her. Since it has been 4 hours already, it is too late to induce vomiting. My recommendation is to take her to the nearest ER, where they can administer activated charcoal, to counteract the potentially toxic compounds in the raisins. They may also recommend keeping her for 24-48 hours on IV fluids. The toxic compounds in grapes can lead to kidney failure, and this can be fatal.
