Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Now I am glad to see these were raisins as those are toxic to dogs. With prunes, they are not toxic (only the pits are a risk) but can cause GI upset in our dogs when they have quite a few. So, while we could induce vomiting (which I am happy to discuss), this isn’t strictly necessary unless there were raisins or xylitol (a dog unfriendly artificial sugar) in it .We can just plan to keep an eye over today and try to offset any GI by offering a light diet option like cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. Further to this, if we see any hints of nausea, then we can also treat with an OTC antacid [ie Pepcid (More Info/Dose @ http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid) or Zantac (More Info/Dose @ http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/ranitidine-hcl-zantac)]. These are usually given 20 minutes before offering food to allow absorption and can be given every 12 hours. Of course, double check with your vet before use if your wee one has any know health issues or is on any medications you haven't mentioned. But again prunes are not toxic and only likely cause GI upset for Charlie if anything at all.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
