Hi there --
Welcome to Just Answer.
Did you dog ingest this ? or are you wondering how much they can ingest without a problem?
Lulu ingested some gluten free cakes mix between 6:30 and 8:30 tonight, ingredients: rice flour, sugar, potato starch and leavening (baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, monocalcium phosphate), xanthan gum and salt
Do you have a rough idea how much of the mis she ate ? all of it, half, or less?
And how long has it been since ingestion?
How big is Lulu?
maybe a quarter of a 15 oz box, this was two to four hours ago, and she's 17 lb. poodle mix. We've just been on a walk and she had a normal pee and poop
She wasn't her normal excited, perky self about going on the walk
She may be feeling a little bloated -- this may cause vomiting and/or diarrhea -- just due to a sudden change in diet --
While baking soda can be toxic -- it would likely take a larger amount to cause true toxicity --and in looking through the other ingredients it is not likely that a pancreatitis would be triggered either.
I would give Pepcid AC to reduce any bloating and ease the stomach acids -- http://www.walkervalleyvet.com/otc-meds.htm
Here is a liknk to daosage
(sorry -- dosage)
and the other thing to give is pediolyte in place of water -- to prevent an y electrolyte depletion from the baking soda.
Is she in good health otherwise?
yes, she's just been to the vet a week ago, for a rabies, bortadella, etc.
Very good --
Is pepcid AC the same as generic famotadine (I'm not the best speller either)?
The side effects that you may see that would warrant a vet visit would be ---
Increased heart rate -- gums pale -- or panting excessively
Distended abdomen -- or pain or discomfort in the abdomen.
Great, so monitor, give pedialyte, and famotadine according to the link
Yes -- and see your vet is any of the issues listed above happen. I would probably worry most about a bloating or distended abdomen -
Minimal vomiting or diarrhea is to be expected -- if it goes beyond a couple of bouts -- or longer than 24 hours -- then a vet visit is warranted as well .
Thanks so much Dr. BJ... I feel a little better now, probably better than Lulu
You are most welcome.
