Hi there,Thanks for your question regarding your 2 year old girl Eva who managed to eat some old cooking oil!

Hi again Kelly,The worry here with a potentially very large ingestion of oil like this is that she could develop acute pancreatitis which can be very painful and cause very bad vomiting and diarrhoea. It sounds as though this may already be on the way. The other issues can be if she begins vomiting a lot and accidentally 'breaths' some of the vomit as this can cause an aspiration pneumonia. Hopefully the oil was cold, since if it was hot there is also a high chance she will have burns to her throat, oesophagus and stomach. As above - the main concern is regarding pancreatitis. If she is really uncomfortable now, I would recommend getting Eva up to your local Vet or ER Vet for intravenous fluid, anti emetics to help stop her from feeling nauseous and careful monitoring overnight. If she doesn't seem to painful and is still responsive to you and drinking normally, then you can continue to keep a close eye on her from home, however given her small size and the potentially large oil ingestion, I think it is better to be safe in this situation and have a Vet monitor her overnight and possibly throughout tomorrow if she develops bad vomiting and diarrhoea secondary to pancreatitis. For now - with hold food. If she seems to perk up tonight and is a lot brighter tomorrow, then I would recommend just a very bland diet for 4 - 5 days. Cooked, boneless, skinless chicken breast and rice is ideal for this type of situation. Best of Luck with Eva and do get her seen tonight if she really is quite painful in her abdomen. As I say - it is always better to be safe than sorry in these types of situations, particularly given she is such a small dog. Don't forget to click an excited face :-D if this has been helpful.
