While I was gone he grabbed a cookie I brought last night from dinner off the kitchen counter. It probably had about 6 or 7 raisins in it. He seems to be okay, but should I be worried enough to take him to the vet?

No, he is probably fine. However, you do need to work on his behavior now...in regards to food snatching. He needs to understand, that unless you tell him it is okay to eat something, it is not his choice. He is a dog. You are the dominant one in the house, and you get to decide who eats, and what, and when they eat.

This can also lead to him becoming food aggressive. So, snip this in the bud.

Beagles, in my experience will go to great lengths to eat whatever they can get to. I hope this is the worst thing he ever gets into.

if he ate it awhile ago and is ok, don't even be concerned. It takes a lot of not healthy things to really make a dog sick. Now, what are you going to do to train him not to get into things he shouldn't? I am guessing nothing. It would be nice if all dogs were well trained, but my guess, most of us have dogs that misbehave, just like kids and even us adults.

As far as training, I don't know if there is much I can do at this point. He is almost 5 years old. We also have a bad habit of feeding him human food. Only healthy stuff though, like he loves broccoli, apples, chicken breast, etc. He is spoiled freakin' rotten and that's the problem.

Anyway, it's been about 10 hours since he ate the cookie and he seems to be doing fine.

Don't worry about it since it was only 6 or 7 raisins. He will be okay

Sam was a Bassett Hound mix. He ate whatever the kids dropped on the floor, and when he knew I was not looking. Who knew what he ate? When I was around he would watch food, but not go for it, until I told him.

He lived to be 14. A fine age...never sick either.
