Customer Question
I think my dog...

I think my dog may have eaten a couple raisins while I was at work what should I do

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if May will be able to digest that. How old is May?

My pup is 2 year old Shepard/boxer mix and he got his hands on a small handful maybe 5 or six raisins about 3 to four hours ago while I was at work

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about May?

No he is otherwise healthy pup on year round heartworm and anti tick/flea meds fully vaccinated he is an indoor pup who eats well

Don't give it a second thought. It takes greater than 0.045 ounces per pound of body weight (about 1/2 ounce of raisins per 10 lbs of body weight) to intoxicate a dog and raisin toxicity is idiosyncratic (peculiar) in any event; in other words, most dogs can ingest raisins to their heart's content without harm. 5-6 raisins in a dog of his size is just a snack. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.

You're quite welcome. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
