This answer was rated:

He is 6.9kg, ate probably close to 12.5 grams flaxseed cooked, 12.5 gram ground almond, 1/2 an avocado and some kale and mushrooms
Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?
Customer: a dog
Assistant: The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: pepper
Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Pepper?
Customer: no he is healthy

Dr. Michael Salkin is typing. Please be patient.

Thankfully, none of those foods are toxic to dogs. Flaxseed is poorly bioavailable to dogs (and so not a good choice when supplementing with fatty acids) and the other foods can be healthy treats. As with ingesting anything unusual, transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Pepper wasn't intoxicated and will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis nor treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
