• My dog ate a cooked shrimp that wasn’t peeled today. It still had the tail attached. Should I be worried? What should I do?

    Hi Whitney,
    I recommend that you keep an eye on him. Shrimp are not toxic to dogs and this will most likely pass without any issue. If you see any symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, or not wanting to eat you should take him into see a veterinarian as soon as possible.
