Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry you are worried about your dog eating raw oats. The oats could absorb fluid in his stomach and swell up, but it really depends on how big a dog he is, and how much he ate, if this could be serious or not.
I am researching this. It does not seem to be a big problem in dogs such as eating uncooked rice; rice apparently absorbs a lot more liquid than oats. He could vomit or have diarrhea, but unless he ate really a lot of them and/or is a really small dog, it should not be a problem.
I hope you are able to see my answer! From what I am reading, diarrhea is probably the worst you might see.Please let me know what questions you have and if this is helpful.
