Onions and Dogs: A Lethal Combination

Sophia Yin, DVM September 4, 2009

1966-2014 R.I.P.

While many of you already know that chocolate can make your cat or dog sick, did you know that onions can kill? I learned this my second year in veterinary school. But I didn’t really appreciate it until the big onion incident that occurred during my senior year. Well, maybe the incident wasn’t all that big; it only involved one dog. But it was my own dog, Max, a 72-pound adult Boxer. And it nearly killed him.

Not surprisingly, pets actually have to eat the onions to get sick, but depending on their size, they may not have to eat much. One fourth of a cup can make a 20-pound dog sick while several cups may be needed to make a large dog sick. Cats are even more sensitive.

You’re probably asking yourself, “What dog or cat with brains would eat onions?” Well, the onions don’t have to be raw. They can be fried as in onion rings, dehydrated, as in Lipton Soup, or prepared in some other tasty form such as sautéed with mushrooms and steak, or hidden in a souffle. In a scattered rash of cat onion toxicity cases a number of years back, the culprit was onion powder used to flavor some baby foods. Veterinarians often temporarily feed meat baby food to cats who are infirmed and unwilling to eat their regular foods. So when the baby food formulations changed, some cats took a turn for the worse while under veterinary care. Due to public pressure baby foods no longer contain onion powder.

In Max’s case, the onions were fried, dried and then left on the coffee table by my roommate before she left for the weekend. I never saw the pound or so of deadly cuisine. All I found was an empty bag and drool on the floor. If I had known what was in the bag, I would have taken Max to my veterinarian immediately. Instead I took him two days later, after the normally boisterous prankster collapsed while exercising. We performed a bunch of diagnostic tests, and on examining the blood work, found the tell-tale signs—little purple clumps in his red blood cells that virtually screamed onion toxicity.

Onions cause toxicity by oxidizing an oxygen-transporting protein called hemoglobin in the red blood cells. When oxidized, hemoglobin forms clumps which can’t carry oxygen as well. These small clumps, called Heinz bodies can be seen in the red blood cells when the blood is viewed under a microscope, especially when the cells are stained with a special stain called New Methylene Blue. Although a number of other compounds can cause Heinz bodies, when a veterinarian sees Heinz bodies in many cat or dog red blood cells, onion toxicity is the first differential that leaps out on the list. Normally, in dogs with onion toxicity a moderate number of red blood cells may contain Heinz bodies. In Max’s case, most of the red blood cells carried the protein clumps.

Heinz bodies don’t usually cause life-threatening problems themselves; the red blood cells can still carry oxygen, just not as efficiently. Heinz bodies cause problems by decreasing the red blood cell lifespan. As a result, the onion-eater becomes anemic. If a large amount of onions is eaten at one time, the pet may develop a sudden anemia several days following the onion feast. If the dog or cat eats a small amount of onions every day for many days, he may gradually develop anemia over weeks to months.

Onion toxicosis is not a tremendously common occurrence. Annually, the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center in Urbana Illinois records only a handful to a dozen calls on onion toxicity and toxicity from its relatives in the Allium genus, garlic and chives. Probably because with low dose exposure, pets may not develop signs severe enough to take to a veterinarian or at least not sick enough to perform diagnostic bloodwork for a definitive diagnosis.

It’s a good thing the incidence is relatively low, since patients that do eat enough onions to develop toxicosis often need to be hospitalized for several days. In cases of severe anemia, they may even need a life-saving blood transfusion. Max did. Luckily most victims of onion over-ingestion respond well to treatment and recover.

Interestingly, garlic can cause the same problems as onions, but since garlic is usually only used in small amounts, dogs and cats aren’t likely to ingest a toxic quantity.

The signs you see with onion toxicosis are signs of anemia and low oxygen such as lethargy, weakness, red urine, decreased stamina, and pale or bluish gums, especially with exercise. While onion toxicity is not a common cause of these signs, consider onion toxicosis if you see these signs and know your pet has gotten into onions recently. If by some freak occurrence, your dog or cat does engage in an onion feast, take him to your veterinarian immediately. She may induce vomiting or administer a product to help decrease the absorption of the onions. If you take this trip in time, your onion eater may be spared many or all of the hazardous sequelae of onion toxicosis and you may be spared the much larger bill associated with intense hospital monitoring and a several night stay.

  1. Wow, I never knew this information. I did know about grapes and chocolate, but not onions. It’s amazing how many people don’t know any of this. I feel they should give a small booklet at the vet containing information such as this. I’m sure some do, but I have never received anything. Although my wife and I did our homework before we got our baby.

    1. When I first got my Siberian Husky I thought he would be able to handle onions and grapes but he did eat a big piece of chocolate the other day nothing happen I thought he could eat grapes but I never tryed to give them to him today he ate a little piece of onion on a burger he jumped up on the counter and ate it I looked on this website to see if a little piece of onion could hurt him but he seems to be fine.

      1. I also have a Siberian Husky. Mine is 72 lbs. He has done the same and got one onion ring. I monitored him and he was ok. If it was just one, and your dog is larger, I’d say he would be ok. But definitely monitor him! Mine has gotten into rat poison and other things. I think he purposely tries to upset me and make me worry till I’m sick!

      2. I am making a huge pot of Ham & beans. I added one onion finely chopped. The onion will cook for five hours with the Ham & beans. Will what ever is in the onion, that causes the toxicity be cooked out enough to give my small dog some of the beans? Even if I rinse the beans to make sure she gets no onion, will the beans be toxic to her since they were cooked with the onion????

        1. I see nobody answered you. We have a similar problem, only with beef roast cooked with onion on top. Half of the meat was planned for the dog (over time). To be on the safe side she is not getting anything that was near an onion!

          1. The issue is that it’s different for each dog. Some dogs could eat a whole cooked onion with no issues and others could die from a small amount. It can vary for individual dog.

        2. I have two Labs each around 80lbs. With their daily “Premium” dry dog food which is often fish, they get drippings from dinner. I cook a lot with onions and garlic, but will water down at least 50% what they get. So they might get actual ¼ cup of juice per day. I use granulated garlic so what they may get is minor. If I use lots of onions, I will strain it. I will not give them anymore than ½ tsp of onions during a week.
          One vet taught me about adding 10% greens to their food, so one of their two meals a day has about tablespoon of oat grass, great for their digestion. Like I do with my body, I try and keep it flushed regularly so any toxins don’t stick around. I am 71 and as healthy as 30 yr old (tests prove it)

          1. According to Dr Yin: “If the dog or cat eats a small amount of onions every day for many days, he may gradually develop anemia over weeks to months. “

    2. I just want to thank you and this website. Learned a lot. I normally feed my dog, myplates scrapings. Which may include onion, garlic, Etc. This website has told me I have been poisoning my dog all along. I want to thank you, because tomorrow morning I’m taking my dog in to have blood work done cuz I love garlic and onion. Once again she’s my life and I don’t want to lose her I always grew up as a man to give your dog your scrapping people food. No more things to you.

  2. Good thing that I ran into your website. I was pretty close to give my dogs some leftover fried onion rings they seemed to be interested in. Thank you. You saved us a lot of trouble!

  3. My rat terrier is not doing so well right now, and she is old. I noticed something was off when she started yelping while laying on the couch and then she jumped off and came toward me, still yelping. She seemed to be fine after that but a couple hours later when we went to leave the house she was walking weird to the car, going sideways with stiff legs. Since then she has not been able to walk or even stand on her own and I can’t afford to take her to the vet right now. I don’t know what’s wrong with her and it kills me seeing my baby go through this. I was curious if anyone knows what it could be that’s causing this

    1. If your pet is having a medical issue, we recommend you go to a vet. We cannot provide medical diagnosis or referrals over the internet. You may want to search for animal care clinics, rescue organizations or humane society offices in your area. We hope that your terrier gets better soon.

      1. My 11 month old Maltipoo had the same symptoms. He became very stiff, limped and had a difficult time walking. Then he had a very high fever and was shivering. He was diagnosed with Lyme disease. He had to be on an IV overnight at a pet hospital and was put on a daily dose of Tetracycline for 4 weeks after many tests to see what was wrong. We had really thought we were losing our dog at one point and the whole ordeal was terrifying. He is fine now. I recommend you take your dog to a vet hospital.

    2. Humane society has a sliding fee. Just took my baby in. Exam and meds and a can of special food only $50.

    3. Sounds like a pinched nerve in her back, or maybe a slight stroke? DEFINITELY want to involve the vet at this point. Good luck and God Bless.

      1. Please do not diagnose or guess a possible diagnosis. Many will make up their mind based what you, a layman, says. It is very dangerous

    4. CareCredit is a program many vets use where you can make payments on a vet bill. Please call around and find a vet who has it or google them and ask if they have a list. Google ‘Cannot afford vet care in (your city)’ and see what you can find. Asking a vet to suffer when it might be something serious is unfair.

    5. CareCredit is a way to pay vet bills in monthly payments. You may want to find a vet that offers this.

    6. Please try to take your dog to a Vet. They will likely work with you on setting up a payment plan.
      Better safe than sorry. Our pets lives are important. I hope all turns out good.

  4. I have a 3 months old puppy who weighs about 3.5 pounds. Yesterday, while i was chopping onions, he took a very a chopped piece of onion and ate half of it. Should i be concerned?

    1. We cannot answer medical questions on a blog, because it requires a doctor looking at your puppy. If there are any medical concerns, you should take your pet to the vet.

  5. My pit bull at an onion ring. She’s about 75 lbs. Her she is a little swollen would that be the problem?

  6. I’ve been putting organic chicken broth on my dogs dry food. She loves it. Now I notice it is made with onions. Could this small amount in broth harm my dog? She a 70 pound lab. I haven’t notice any symptoms. Should I just stop giving it to her.

    1. Dawn,
      I was doing the same with my 66 lb husky mix. I stopped after I learned onions were bad for them and the broth contained then. What I do now is make my own broth whenever we eat chicken for dinner. I just save all the bones and boil them with cut up celery and carrots. After 10 mins or so I remove the bone and put the broth in mason jars along with the carrots and celery. He loves it!

      1. Masi, Boiling bones for 10 minutes is NOT long enough to boil out the good nutriments that make up Bone Broth. Goole Bone Broth for Dogs, their are a number of recipes out there. Most have you adding apple vinegar. It takes about 24 hours in a crock pot or 4 hours in a pressure cooker.

        1. Yes, and you can cook it down to make a gravy. If you slow cook it for 24-48 hours, the bones will actually get super soft. I mash them between my fingers and add them back into the broth. I make sure that there are NO bone shards in there that can cause a big problem. Bone broth helps a dog’s immune system as well as his joints- same with people. It has minerals and collagen, which is really great for you.

  7. If my dog eats onions, should i just watch him to see signs of toxicity or should I make him throw up or something, the article does not say.

  8. Hello, my 3 pound puppy ate human vomit that contained some onion, she is now having a dry hacking cough. It is sunday and her vet clinic is closed. What should I do?

  9. My french poodle would sometimes eat cooked onion slices and not a thing EVER happened to him. Of course, years later I found out that onions can be lethal to dogs and have since stopped giving onions to my dog. He’s still alive & kicking Ativan 13 years of age.

    1. Is your dog named Ativan? Or do you give him Ativan? Ha just wondering. I bought this uncured pulled chicken from Walmart. Already cooked. It has many seasonings and dehydrated onion is one of them. I usually feed him rotisserie chicken. He is a chihuahua and is almost 12 years old. Would like your feedback. Thanks

  10. Hi All ,
    Sharing such informations is really beneficial , but i want to add that , my dogs are almost 4 months now , i always cook freshh food daily , concentrating on boiling the sewdust to the max almost 2 hrs and always with 3 shopped onions , i thought that it would help killing any bacteri , and i see no side effects at all , the breeds are healthy strong , hiper name it …
    No vomits , dearia , or etc…
    My question is if that is ok because they are used on it since i purchased at the age of 2 months ??
    Or something is happening at the back seen of their organism and it will appear later ?

    1. I’ve been reading a lot about this and everything that I have found says to stop feeding them immediately. It sometimes isn’t a quick reaction it could develop over time and give them issues later on. I’m also not an expert but I’d suggest to not feed them it anymore. I wouldn’t chance it.

    2. Some dogs, if they were autonomous, might very well choose to eat onions and be at risk for anemia, the bad things that anemia causes, and a shorter, less comfortable, short of breath quality of life.

      My vet told me to limit my cat’s food, stating “you’ll get a few more years out of them.” If Kitty was autonomous, and I asked her if she’d rather be fed, fat, and happy for 15 years, or if she’d prefer a hungry, boring, unhappy life for 17 years, she’d say, “gimme the food.”

      I think that the risks versus benefits points to a clear choice to discontinue the onion feedings. Unless your dog could make the choice to eat onions and be short of breath and fatigued, you just should err on the side of safely.

      If you feed your dog onions, and it builds up slowly, can you stop the damage in time to reverse it well enough that other systems are not permanently impacted in a negative way?

      If you stop feeding your dog onions, will he perceive this as a slight? Keeping him out of the circle? Will he be unhappy eating his food without onions in the gravy?

      My dog loves to eat. But, if I laid out two bowls of gravy, one with onion and the other without, I’m not convinced she wouldn’t just eat them both without noticing or caring about the presence of onions.

      So, feed onions for real potential for harm, or withhold and have the pup hate you for it? Will he ever let it go and forgive you for it? Or, would he just eat the onion less gravy and be happy he has gravy?

      1. I enjoyed your post. You have a good sense of humor. Unfortunately, I was unaware of the onion rule for dogs and I think my 20 lb. terrier has been eating trace amounts in broth etc., for 2 years. No more.

  11. It sounds from this article like cooked onions also cause problems? Some dog treats contain onion powder. I will not feed my dogs these treats, but someone told me as long as the onions are cooked it’s okay. I had not heard that before and can’t find anything online. Would love your input!

  12. I hv been feeding leftover with lots of onions and garlic. My 12yr old dog hv been consuming the cooked onions n garlic happily.

    1. Damien, PLEASE stop feeding these! The liver or kidneys can be affected too- not necessarily immediate. The article is FACTUAL- your dog WILL be affected and you are shortening his life! Please?

    2. This article very informative. I cook for my dog without adding onions to the food however she did get some scraps of our food which may have contained them. I just had to put my dog down yesterday for an immune disorder disease this has nothing to do with onions but believe me you will regret it if you keep intentionally feeding your dog onions and it does affect the kidneys or the liver. it would turn into a very slow and agonizing death and by slow I mean this might only be a few days or a couple of weeks which does seem pretty quick but it’s not when you’re watching your dog die and be in pain. please leave out the onions, be a responsible owner.

  13. Interesting, I’ll stop feeding them to my dog.

    However, the grapes thing is news to all the winery dogs I know, as they almost invariably eat the grapes when ripe. Maybe they don’t understand the deadly nature of their food of choice.

  14. Thank you so much for this information our boxadore who is 10 mths old was given about 3 tablespoons with a mix of cooked hamburger, rice and oinions. I used a half of an onion with about 2.5-3 pounds of hamburger. and 3 cups of rice all was put into green peppers and cooked on top of the stove in tomato soup,, It just happened what should I do.?! It’s Saturday night and it’s after 11:00 pm. We will never do this again.

  15. Can a dog eat a beef stew that onions are cooked in if you only give them the meat and carrots and potatoes?

    1. Anything like this can be risky as it’s not the physical onion itself but the chemicals in the onion that end up in the stew. Theoretically, you should be ok but smaller dogs can have issues, there is no way to know how much onion ends up in the finished product and there are just some dogs that have bad reactions.

  16. Why even take the chance if it could harm your cat or dog?
    There r plenty of other things that are safe to give them so why the insistence on sticking to giving them something that is proved to be toxic?
    I love my little girl too much to even take a chance.
    First thing I do when I buy food or treats if check for ingredients & if there is a known toxin in there, I am NOT buying it because it just isn’t worth it to take a chance on harming my baby.

  17. I agree with you Susan. If you love your dog and cat why feed them something that we have been told is possibly toxic. Do talk to your vet and ask. Then you will know for sure.

  18. i was giving my dog chicken broth. Guess what? It has Onion and Garlic. I have been wondering what was going on with her Liver? Last year her blood work suggested her Liver enzymes were off and she was prescribed medicine. Now i know.

  19. Ok, so now I’m freaking out because I just gave my two dogs a couple of bites from a burger that had cooked onions in it! One is an English Mastiff who is over 200lbs and the other a miniature dachshund. The amount I gave them was proportional but reading this just now, I’m worried I just poisoned them! On a scale of 1 – 10, 10 being the worst, how worried should I be?

    1. Anytime you are concerned with something like this, please call your vet for best advice. Having said that, your dogs, especially the Mastiff should be fine.

  20. We cooked some steal tonight , I had cooked it with some garlic pieces, garlic powder, and onion powder. Not knowing, I cut off a quarter size piece of the steak and gave it to my girl friends 12 Lb Pomeranian , 2 years of age. . Should we be concerned ? She had a long day today and was expected to be tired. I haven’t seen her urinate yet.

    1. My 100 lbs Dane just had a couple pieces of pork cooked in onion powder and garlic powder. It was an accident. Just wondering how your girl friends dog made out? Thanks.

  21. I was freaking out because I found out that my Maltese had eaten the food that was left on a plate (which is something she usually doesn’t do, which is why I left it unsupervised). It was mostly just rice and chicken, which is perfectly safe, but then I remembered that it also had a few tiny pieces of onion in it. I already knew that onion was toxic to dogs, so I was incredibly worried, but considering the amount, after reading this article, I think she’ll be okay. Maybe an upset stomach tomorrow but hopefully that’ll be all.

  22. I just gave my Sheltie some of my bone broth that I cooked with some onions and garlic. She only got the broth. I didn’t give her any onions or garlic. Would that broth and all foods (meat and carrots) cooked with onions be considered equally toxic to dogs and cats?

    1. The toxins in onions is called thiosulphate and it can be in the broth and may penetrate other cooked foods. It builds up over time and causes anemia. It is not recommended to feed any onions, garlic or foods cooked with them. Please consult your vet for a better answer.

  23. I personally know a dog that died from onion toxicity. The dog was a show dog and meant the world to his owner. I say, why it! I see in the previous comments that some people think since their dog ate an onion and nothing happened that this is misinformation. Please be responsible pet owners and make intelligent decisions for our pets. They rely on you.

  24. This is a very informative site, insofar as the information is concerned. Just back from a two-day run at the local veterinary hospital with a serious life-threatening condition with my rat terrier. He is young and strong. No definitive cause of onset of symptoms, which were vomiting, severe gastro-intestinal blow-out, lethary, etc. Anemia was detected in the bloodwork, and I.V. was administered for electrolyte replacement and med infusion. Post-briefing with the doc was all “what it could possibly be”. No mention of onion toxicity whatsoever. It was just happenstance that brought me to this site. I had fed him a bowl of my home-made soup, chock full of red and sweet onions. It was all still intact when he threw it up the next day or so, along with having severe bleeding and blow-out from the back end. Too bad so little is known about this, to the extent that even trained vets don’t automatically present it as a possible cause.

  25. My siberian huskies got into my pantry and ate a small piece of onion and garlic one weighs 19kg and the other is 15kg give or take ? what should i do??

  26. I bought a two month old English Mastiff which was previously fed puppy kibble, i started feeding him chicken and rice as advised by most dog owners for like some few days and i started to notice pinkish rash around his eyes, anus, fore legs, mouth and ears. i returned to the original feeding with kibble plus adding some good amount of grilled fish which would to make it look attractive, but it seems he no longer finds the kibble interesting as well. i don’t know if his lost of appetite is a result of bringing him into a new one and also restricting him to a cage for most of the time. What can I do?

  27. To clarify, are the effects of onion/garlic consumption cumulative? If my dog gets to lick plates a couple times a week (everything I make has onion and/or garlic in it…) is that building up in her system? I make sure there are no chunks of food on the plate, but she “rinses” them before they go in the dishwasher… She’s a 50 lb Fox Hound mix, if that matters.

  28. Late last night I caught my dog eating an onion. I am very worried and have been doing a lot of research, my dog is a mix breed of cooker spaniel and others that are unknown. He is about the size of a medium dog maybe a bit bigger then a puppy golden retriever and he ate more then half the onion. I am really worried and am not sure what the outcome will be. Its worse cause he has Megaesofugus so he can only have liquids. I can’t stop stressing out and am having trouble concentrating on other things. Is there anything you can tell me about what might come of it? (I read on many sites that some outcomes are death)

  29. My grandma is growing some onions and I seen her chewing on one. I stopped her bc I didn’t know if she could eat it but know I know she can’t….. would she be ok? I don’t think she eat any of it but if she did, it would be a little bit!!

  30. My Malti-Poo has been eating onions and dried onion powder in her home cooked food that I make for her for 9 years. I only just found out watching “Puppies” on cable that onions are poisonous to dogs, so I went online here to see if it was true! She loves her food (chicken breast and lean beef with carrots,
    green beans and applesauce topped with a little grated cheese) and LOVES onions! but simply won’t eat unless I flavor it with onions, pepper, etc. Before, she just wouldn’t eat at all, very picky, and was severely underweight. Her health is good, but I don’t know if her blood work is good,
    i.e. if she’s anemic…so I will stop giving her onion immediately. She will have to learn to eat her food without onion!

  31. Why are onions not toxic to humans? What’s the difference that make humans less vulnerable?

    1. Onions contain an ingredient called thiosulphate. The Human digestive system has an enzyme which breaks thiosulphate down. Dogs and cats don’t have this enzyme thus making it toxic to them.

  32. Can my dogs eat chicken that has been boiled with garlic, onions and salt? The onion and garlic is chopped up in big pieces and boiled with the chicken but not actually given to my dogs. We only give the chicken

  33. Help! My dog ate 3 onions 20 minutes ago (cooked) he is fine right now he weights 24kg (20 pounds roughly) and I’m
    Only 12 but my parents refuse to take him to the vet they say I’m exaggerating because he hasnt thrown up 20 mins after I keep trying to tell thing it takes days for the affects but I don’t know what to do please help!!!

  34. Hi Dr Yin. Very useful info. I was eating at table and dropped small piece of cooked onion or maybe not. I’m not sure. But my 16 lb pooch seemed to grab it although he’s usually very cautious on foods he’s not familiar with. From research it seems a small pooch would need to eat a small onion to reach toxic effects. So I’m hoping he has no issues here. But your article would be good to contain info on pooch body weight vs amount of onion needed to cause major concerns. Thank you

    1. Hi. I regret to inform you that Dr. Yin passed away over 3 years ago. As for a weight chart, it’s not possible as no one knows really what a proper weight ratio is. Some dogs can eat a lot of something like grapes, chocolate or onions and suffer no ill effects while another dog of the same breed and size eats less and dies.

  35. My husky lab mix got ahold of a sub I made and it had onions and sweet onion sauce on it. She’s been throwing up here and there. Got and suggested ideas on what I should do?

  36. Years ago I had 2 dogs, 95lbs & 65lbs. 95 had a 7 foot reach standing up on her back legs, so the top of the fridge wasn’t safe place.

    We had tot-locks in place to keep her out of the cabinets, pantries & the oven, yes oven. 350 degree Fahrenheit did not stop this 95lb dog from eating thecooking food.

    A guest one night used the microwave to heat water for her tea. She didn’t put the choc chip cookies back in. 95lb probably ate most of the 48 cookies, she was fine, showed no symptoms. 65lb ate maybe 2-3 cookies & spent 2 nights in the hospital with a charcoal tummy flush, IV’s & a bunch of vomiting & diarrhea.

    95lb ate anything & everything she could get her paws & mouth on. 65lb ate chocolate ONE time, cookies that didn’t have hardly any chocolate, and she almost died!

    If your pet eats a food on the toxic list, don’t blog it, ask a blog, or say, “should I take my dog in”? PLEASE, PLEASE, Please, take the pooch in.

    1. It will depend on the amount of toxin, the age of your pet, and other health factors. Only the veterinarian examining a dog who has been exposed to the toxin can answer this. Some dogs have died, some have survived. So not feed onions and prevent your dog from eating onions outside.

  37. We were adding a bit of chicken broth, unsalted, to some rice that we add to their raw diet. I swear it use to say NO onion, but the one we bought today had Onion extract. We were wondering if we could diluted it quite a bit, just adding maybe a 1/2 cup along with water to the rice? Dogs are small though, 11 to 12 lbs.

    1. I would return it to the store. It’s not worth the risk to your dogs, especially with them being so small.

  38. Hello, please help, my dog just ate a single chip with onion powder in it, he is around 12 pounds and I don’t know what to do. Will he be fine? I’m very worried.

  39. I wish I would of seen this before . O believe that is what happened to my dog . He got into the garbage and he ate a pot full of stir fry rice with a lot of onions , garlic and shallots . He was so sick for 3 days vomiting, diarrhea and then blood in stools that looked like jello his gums gray eyes yellow . I gave him antibiotics fluids and some charcoal stuff and He pulled through .
