but the dogs got into the pantry while we were gone and they ate some trail mix that had raisins in it. It was probably about a third of the bag and they ate it last night.

 

We discovered the empty bag this morning.

 

What do I need to do or watch for? They are both eating/drinking fine, no lethargy, no labored breathing or other signs of renal failure... but everything I read is making me more and more scared... :(

You could ask your vet but chances are good they'll be fine. Drinking more and peeing more, beyond a day or so, would be cause to go get a blood test.

Just to make you feel a little better, some years back my parents' 40-lb whippet ate AN ENTIRE HUGE PLATEFUL of grapes and suffered no ill effects.

Well, if it's been over 12 hours, the stuff in the raisins is in their bloodstream by now since the digestive process of a dog avereages between 6 and 10 hours.

 

 

Just watch for signs of distress, but if it's a 10 ounce bag of trail mix, and only 3 ounces were left, I would doubt there would be much more than 1 ounce of raisins left.

Don't freak out. . . .they should be okay.

 

I have to admit :blush I used to give Tucker the raisins out of my trail mix. . .. before I knew any better. . . .

Sunny did this to me a while back.

Like you I was freaking out.

The only bad thing that came from it was what came out the exit.

Those were the worst looking and smelling poops I have seen. :puke

Hope they are okay.

You have my sympathy.

Jilly did this once. Helped herself to some trailmix. She was fine just the raisin peanut poop logs were a little off putting.

You can also call Animal Poison Control. It's run by the ASPCA. There is an initial $55 charge for a consult, but if you have to call a second time, they don't charge you. It's great peace of mind and they tell you what symptoms to look for and if you should be worried. I had to call them after DH left out a Chocolate Slim-fast shake! :rolleyes:

 

1-888-426-4425 is the number. They assign you a case number and give you a direct line (toll-free) so if you DO have to call back, you can get through quicker.

I realize that recently there has been a lot of news about raisins being "toxic," but my father has fed raisins (and grapes!) to every dog we've ever had for his 77+ years of dog ownership--and not one of them has ever had any kind of reaction!

 

I am sure that if a dog ate a big box of raisins they might well get sick, but they never bothered any of our dogs in moderation. We no longer give the dogs raisins, but please don't freak out!

Well both pups are fine, although I honestly think Sadie got the bulk of it... her poops at least were the ones filled with peanuts :rolleyes:

 

I would not have freaked so much had I been able to find specific information about breed/weight and amount of raisins ingested...

 

 

But again, they are both fine, just their happy mellow selves :)

 

 

Thanks for everyone's concern :)

 

 

Oh, and I have the number for the ASPCA Poison hotline on the fridge after JillysfullHouse posted about it last year. Very good thing to have I agree!

Hopefully, you won't have a repeat, but the grape entry on this list this list has some info.
