Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. I would not worry in the slightest about the small amount of onion in one onion ring, this will be very unlikely to have affected Fox at all, he should be just fine. You see the situation is that while it is true that onions can be toxic to dogs due thiosulphate poisoning I am glad to say that it actually takes quite a lot of onions to be toxic to dogs, the rule of thumb which I personally apply is that a single meal of one pound of onions can be dangerous to a 15 pound dog. { Which is quite a small dog }

2. Given the above, there are no special precautions you need take. But in any case, I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely event that Fox's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
