Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Actually, I would very much doubt if your dog will suffer any adverse side effects from this, while there may well be gunpowder residues on your hand or other contamination these will be present in very low concentrations, almost certainly too low to cause any problems if transferred in your dog's food. Under the circumstances there are no special measures you need take, Els should be just fine.

2. But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely event that Els's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
