Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Did they vet know about the stew consumption?Was bloodwork performed on Monday?Any vomiting or diarrhea witnessed?
I'm happy to help, but need more info (in particular, I need answers to the questions I posed, I'll list the ones addressed below):Was bloodwork performed on Monday?Any vomiting or diarrhea witnessed?
It would be worth asking and, if so, obtaining a copy of the blood work. Bloodwork can give us a lot of information and can tell us if the stew might have been to blame. Feeding human food, laden with onions or not, is risky. Typically for a larger breed dog, feeding some cooked onions in stew wouldn't be expected to cause major symptoms for a few days, if it caused problems at all. I suspect something like pancreatitis may have been underlying for a few days with kenneling as this can come on with stress. The stew, if so, would have only worsened his symptoms and may have been the catalyst to him becoming critical and passing away. I would see if your vet did run bloodwork and, if so, see if you can post a copy to share with me. I'll see if I can help you further with that info.
