Hello, she just ate...

Hello, she just ate a few walnuts, I'm concerned, because she has a problem with seizures, she's on medication

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

No, just the seizures

She only had a few, I would say 6 little pieces
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No, not moldy, not black walnuts, yes, they were cooked, not raw

Your dog should be fine. It is only the moldy or bad walnuts that can cause a problem due to fungi on the walnuts that can cause seizures. But if these were good walnuts and cooked, your dog should be fine....

Ask Your Own Dog Question

Also if dogs eat walnuts with the shell they can become obstructed...

Wha is bad walnuts?

MOLDY walnuts...

Ask Your Own Dog Question

walnuts that have fungus growing on them....

Ask Your Own Dog Question

Fungus can contain mycotoxins which can cause seizures.....but your walnuts were good and were cooked....so your dog will be fine...

No she'll,not moldy, ok, I'm reading the box that I found in the garbage, they are cashews

Can I answer any other questions? Ok let me check on cashews for you...just a minute...

Ask Your Own Dog Question

cashews were cooked, correct?

Ask Your Own Dog Question

cashews are not toxic in small amounts when they are cooked but are toxic raw.....so she should be fine...
