Thankfully, there's nothing toxic to dogs in shrimp. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise Russell wasn't intoxicated. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. You might have a word with Russell, however. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
