He is fine, I called the vet and he told me to watch him for about 2 hours to see how he was. He pooped fine and has been his normal self. I guess he could have spit them out. I dont know. He picked it up and threw it out of my salad like he knew they were bad. I know not all of them are toxic. I just dont know if they can all hurt him. But he seems fine and goofy

Oh thank goodness! I know how you feel. One day my boyfriend was eating a salad with avocados and Elvis jumped on the plate, grabbed a piece & tossed it, but I totall wigged out thinking he could have ingested some of it. I too called my vet & she said the same thing, watch him closely. Well, all if fine. But he scared the day lights out of me...
