My dog just ate part of a pecan pie. Will he get sick? He's about 35lb American Eskimo.
As long as it wasn't a chocolate pie, he should be fine. You may see him a bit hyper from all the sugar, he might have some diarrhea from the unfamiliar snack, but he should be fine. It is possible the crust has a lot of fat in it and that might cause some upset stomach. If he vomits or has a lot of diarhea, with blood in it, or seems to be in a lot of pain then you might suspect a pancreas issue, which you can read about here http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?cls=2&cat=1580&articleid=335 But other than that or the pecans not digesting well and irritating his system he should be OK, the sneaky little devil!
