    Help Can a dog eat chili?!

    Advertisements
    Omg I feel so irresponsible. My dog ate about 3 or 4 oz of chili. He is acting totally fine right now, but I'm worried. Should I take him to the vet or wait it out? He is almost 100 lbs

    It was from a restaurant, and these are the ingredients listed
    Home-Style Chili
    Base: Ground Beef, Kidney Beans
    Spice: Cumin, Black Pepper

    I don't know. Probably. The restaurant isn't open so I can't call and ask.
    I forgot it was outside on the patio. I was eating out there last night and randomly decided to come inside and go to bed. I let him out without thinking... ah. Bear is still walking around like nothing is wrong. DF says not to take him to the vet unless he starts acting differently, but I'm not so sure.

    Most of the things online I found when I googled say it should be okay if it isn't too spicy.

    It may cause some diarrhea and stomach upset, but he should be fine. Especially since he's so big and only ate a few oz

    I'm not a vet but I think he is probably fine. Especially being such a big dog. Maybe be prepared for some poison farts and potential diarrhea though.

    I'm no vet, but given the things our family dogs have eaten in the past I'm sure he'll be fine. If weeks-old dead rabbit on the regular didn't hurt our spaniel, I'm sure chilli won't do anymore than perhaps an upset tummy.

    Thanks everyone. It's been almost an hour and he seems perfectly fine, so I'm going to guess we are probably okay.

    Not a vet, but my 20lb beagle has stolen plenty of food from us..even a big slice of thanksgiving pie... I dont think a couple of ounces of mostly meat and beans would hurt such a large dog. Even if there was garlic or onions in the chili, I personally wouldn't worry about it.

    Just be prepared for some killer farts.

    ETA - I have scavengers, so I have had to induce vomiting a couple of times after they have eaten things. This is a good guide that I have bookmarked. Remember to always talk with a vet before inducing.

    I'd be concerned about the onion and garlic as PP mentioned. Were there large chunks of them in there? I know nothing about toxicity and I'm obviously not a vet but I hope Bear is okay!!
