AH CRAP. Onions/garlic - should I worry?

Postby brunomom » Sun Jun 19, 2011 10:21 pm

um - Bella just ate about 1/2 cup of salsa I had sitting out on the coffee table. I looked it up and onions and garlic are toxic for dogs?! OMG REALLY?! Crap - do I worry? What do I do?

UGH!

There's probably a very small amount of both in 1/2 cup of salsa. Dogs need large amounts of both to develop sign of anemia.

Chase has eaten a ton of onions and garlic in his lifetime. Healthier than a horse, except for that pesky leg of his..

That amount shouldn't be a problem...

I've only seen onion toxicity when dogs eat things like onion soup powder and the like...
