We were on vacation at the beach, Rosie played in the sand and salt water for several days. When we got home, we noticed she was leaking urine (very clear, looked like water at first). We took her to the vet and they drew blood and urine (results pending). On the way home, we remembered that we accidentally gave our GSD some raisins. We had given her some breakfast leftovers (this is unusual, but we were all on vacation). The breakfast included some cottage cheese, pineapple, strawberry, and granola. We then remembered that the granola had rasins in it. At most, she ate 10 raisins at 9:30 am. No vomitting, no diarrhea, playful, alert. Rosie is 73lbs (33kg). We took her back to the 24hr hospital and they drew blood again. Her renal function was normal at 6pm last night. They were normal again at 6am this morning. They are giving her IV fluids and checking her renal function every 12 hours. The vet thinks that the brief urinary incontinence and any raisin induced toxicity are not related. My guess is that there is a UTI or some irritation there since she was in the sand/ocean muck for 4 days and perhaps she got irritated.
All of the studies I've looked at say that the first sign of raisin toxicity is vomitting and diarrhea (she had none). Her renal function tests are normal 21 hours after injestion. She is bright and alert. The majority of the studies and webinfo correlates toxicity to the amount of raisins and size of dog (certain # of grams of raisins to kg of dog). Again, Rosie ate between 4 and 10 raisins, she is 73 lbs (33 kg). She is showing no classic raisin toxicity signs, and her blood work (renal function tests) are normal to this point.
Any info or reassurance at this point would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
