    Default Roxi OVERATE!!! HELP!!!!

    My 7 month old baby tore a hole in my boyfriends dogs food while we were gone. I don't know how much she ate, the hole was small. Her tummy is HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!! She has thrown up about 5 times (semi-solid food chunks) and has gone poop a lot (runny/ semi-solid). She is acting normal other than just a little slower and uncomfortable. I have given her 1/2 tsp. pepto and ice chips and she is drinking water. I can hear her belch and fart every now and then. I'm terrified something is wrong. What should I do? Any suggestions? When will she be back to normal?

    Jozi did the same thing tonight. I think she will be OK. Just will
    take some time for all the food to pass. As I type she just puked
    again. But hey its OK cause she cleaned it up herself.

    Like I said I think it will just take some time to pass threw. I know
    I have eaten to much before and it just makes me hurt for
    awhile but after a bit I'm OK.

    Oh I don't know. Can you call your vet or a local emergency vet to see what they say?

    I would call your vet and ask what symptoms to look for in case. I personally cannot see how she is behaving, but you are her mommie. Go with your gut. It may be a wasted trip to the vet but just in case you may want to be sure.

    I know you have probably figured out by now, you cannot leave anything laying around. Sometimes it is not safe even if you put it up! Just like toddlers. Small toys they can swallow, things they can access or damage.... all of it has to be child- or in this case- bulldog proof!

    Ireland did the same thing before all the dogs were on the same food, She threw up a few times and pooed alot. It took her about 5 hours to be "normal" what ever that is lol...

    @RoxiBear
    Vegas knocked about 5 days rations off the counter and he ate it all. I called our vet and they asked what he was doing at that exact moment. I said "watching my husband eat..begging". The doctor said "He'll be fine". His stomach was so huge, but he didn't throw up at all.

    This has also happened to me, only with marshmallows. I was making Rice Krispie Treats for a party and had 4 1-pound bag of marshmallows. For some reason, Linus sniffed them out and ate all of them out of the cupboard while I was out. He ate a full 4 pounds of marshmallows plus some of the bag. He was a mess - vomiting and pooping - for a good 8 hours and he drank a ton before he returned to normal.

    I think, unless something happens that is really out of sort - blood in the vomit or stool - you might wait to see if things calm down once the food is passed. Chances are things will be fine but the ER vet will charge you for a visit and probably some subcutaneous fluids, which are likely not necessary at this point.

    Please let us know how she does and, as desertsky says, if your gut is telling you something is very wrong, take her in to the vet. You know her best.

    Wow, I wonder if Roxi and Jozi got together and planned this? Hope they're both okay again soon.

    Well I would not feed her anything for about twelve hours, keep the water available but if she continues to vomit hold that as well for at least a couple hours. You have to watch her for bloat, I have included a link, this is a TRUE EMERGENCY. Bloat, Gastric Dilation Volvulus GDV
