Eating Almonds

It's been a while since I've posted, but I'm in a panic. My little Gracie found some almonds and craisens in my daughters backpack tonight while I was out. DH and kids were home and didn't know. We really aren't sure how many she ate. It was a small baggie full. My daughter doesn't think there were a bunch in there, but who knows - she's 8 yrs. old. I noticed that cranberries are in many dog foods, so I'm not worried about them. Does anyone know how a dog is with almonds? Gracie is a 5 1/2 months, but only 4 lbs. Should I worry about this overnight? I don't think I will be sleeping much tonight - I'll be up worrying for sure. So, any piece of mind would be appreciated.

Thanks so much!!

Karen, almonds are not that bad for your dog, but they may be harder to digest. It really depends on how many she ate in the first place, but since you don't know that, you can either give her something to make her throw up (like peroxide) or just wait out the night or go to your vet, whatever you feel the most comfortable with. I would give her the peroxide if it were me.

Again, a few almonds shouldn't hurt her, if that's all she had.

I am sorry I don't know anything about almonds, but do you have a emergency vet you could call and ask?

Hi Karen,

I do not think anything Gracie ate would cause any harm to her, even if she is on the small side. Why not call a after hours emergency vet and ask acouple questions.

I give my Hav's unsalted almonds from time to time..they are fine with it. Raisens however are suppose to be toxic, but I think if she ate one you'd know right away if whe were having a reaction.

You could give your Vet a call just to ease your mind..Even if it's after hours they usually have someone on call that will call you back..

One other thing you could do is to Google "are almonds ok to give dogs.."

Craisins are just cranberries, so I don't imagine they'd do any harm other than have alot of sugar. And almonds aren't toxic that I know of, but macadamia nuts are supposed to be. Gracie might get a little upset tummy, but I don't think you have to panic. I agree that you could call the vet to ease your mind.

I add cranberries in our homecooked stew. They have not caused a problem.

I think she'll be alright...and will probably just have a belly ache, the cranberries and almonds..I don't think they will hurt her, I'd just keep an eye of her for an allergic reation. How is she? I see this was written last night, did she act any different last night?
