My dog just ate a Wolf spider!

Customer Question

My dog just ate a Wolf spider. Would that harm him?

Do I need to keep him awake or can I let him sleep
Expert:  S. August Abbott, CAS replied 1 year ago.

He's fine. Let him sleep. The worry would be if the spider bit him - the toxin in a spider is in it's bite - eating it wouldn't cause harm.

Even in a bite it wouldn't be horrible. Possible redness or allergic reaction at the site of the bite.

Feel better?
