My ten pound Chihuahua...

My ten pound Chihuahua ate a oatmeal raisin cookie. Stole it from my 87 year old mom. Should I take him to emergency? Cookie probably had 4-5 raisins in it.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Peanut

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Peanut?

Nothing I am aware of. He just had a check up last month and is in good health. He is 4 years old.

Hello again,

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

1. Good news! It turns out that just five raisins are way below any toxic level for a dog of Peanut's weight, so there is no special measure you need take, he should be just fine. But let's talk things over in more depth ...

2. You see the lowest documented toxic dose for raisins ingestion in the dog I have found via the literature is 0.1 oz of raisins per kg of the dog's body weight. And on average as a conservative estimate, 25 raisins weigh one ounce. Peanut weighs 4.54 kg { 10 pounds } which works out at around ten raisins being the toxic dose in your dog's case. So really, no cause for concern today.

3. 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 your Peanut's condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
