So today I took the first half of the day off work because I wasn't feeling well, and my Nina was being sweet and cuddling with me. I got hungry and remembered I had half of one of these trader joe's ONION & cheese tarts in the fridge
, so I grabbed the tupperware container and returned to the couch, where my little Hav kept sleeping peacefully.
After I ate 1/4 of the tart, my kettle went off, and I went to go pour myself a cup of tea. As I walked away, I thought, "Should I move this last piece? Nah... she's fast asleep. She will be fine." I returned ~1 minute later with my cup of tea, and Nina had grabbed the piece of tart out of the tupperware off the side table and GONE TO TOWN. She ate all of the toppings and some of the crust..
I should have known better..
I called my vet to tell her about what happened, and she said I shouldn't do anything beside keep an eye on her, watch out for lethargy, drooling, pale gums, profuse vomiting/diarrhea for the next week! (!?) It really wasn't that much onion (maybe 1 tbsp??), and it was cooked. I had to go to work for a few hours, but when I left the house, she was hyper and cheerful as usual.
Has anyone else's dog ingested onion before? What happened? I hope I'm being overly anxious. I get nervous about this stuff because she's only 10 lbs, but she's survived eating a rawhide practically whole, eating chapstick, and eating a foam earplug (which she vomited), so I hope she just has a strong stomach??
