    Default Should I be worried

    My 5 yr old ylf just ate almost an entire loaf of Pepperage Farm Sour Dough bread!
    No dinner for her tonight. At 120 calories per slice, she eat 11 of the 16 slices! Yikes!

    Call your vet and ask about the amount of yeast ingested.

    We had a dog come into the hospital years ago that had eaten a large quantity of pizza dough. The dog almost died as the yeast fermented in the stomach.

    Talk about stinky breath and flatuence!!!

    Could not reach my vet. Called the emergency vet.service. She said to watch for bloat, lethargy or restlessness and unwillingness to lie down. That would be an indication of intestinal blockage or twist. That would require a trip to the emergency hospital.

    She seems to be okay at the moment. It is her dinner time and she doesn't understand why I picked up her bowl.

    A few years ago, my now 14 yo male took it upon himself to scarf down a full package of Wolferman's Gourmet Sourdough English Muffins...those really thick ones. INCLUDING the packaging and wrapper. A day later he feasted on 5 lbs of ground round left to thaw in the sink - which, to this day, I still don't know how he got up and into without using a chair. (I invested in scat-mats shortly thereafter.)

    Right after the raw beef chowdown, he was looking more than a little like a beached whale, so I called the vet. Because the muffins were so thick and a kind of chewy consistency there was some concern for impaction. And add 5lbs of steak tartar to top it off? Away we went to the clinic for a 'reversal of fortune'.
