Dr. Michael Salkin is typing. Please be patient. I have 50 years of experience in canine, feline, avian, rodent, and rabbit medicine and surgery.

I understand your concern. thankfully, despite what you may have read, pecans aren't toxic to dogs (a lot of them could potentially obstruct the gastrointestinal tract but that's not likely in a 27 lb dog who ingested chopped pieces).

Thus, there's no need to induce vomiting nor treat in any manner. Please fast Shadow for 6 hours to allow his stomach to empty naturally and rest. Leave water down for him to drink.

You can feed and water as usual after his fast.

Please respond with additional questions and concerns if you wish.

Okay thank you
