Thank you. Leo is a 2 1/2 year old Italian Greyhound with bad breath.

Friend, walnuts are not toxic to dogs, but, because of their high fat content they can cause vomiting, diarrhea, pancreatitis, etc. I would recommend you keep an eye on him for the next 24 hours. If he develops vomiting and diarrhea this is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium. Start him on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/4 tablet every 12 hours for 2-3 days. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy.

2- No food or water for 8-12 hours. Need to give his gastrointestinal tract time to rest.

3- After 8-12 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer a small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days then wean into regular diet.

4- If he continues to vomit after doing the above he will need to be seen by your family veterinarian for a hands on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!

should I be concerned about his bad breath?

He may need to have his teeth cleaned by your vet or he needs friendly bacteria; you can supplement with a probiotic. In addition, brush his teeth with a dog tooth paste. You can buy this in your local pet store.

You're welcome.
