Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.
I'm sorry for this concern for Banjo. I do have a few additional questions to ask about him first, if you don't mind:
1. What are the ingredients in the treat that he ate?
2. How much bigger is it than he would normally be given?
3. How long ago did he eat it?
4. How much does he weigh?
There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
I'm sorry for the long distance nature of where you are and where the pup in question is located.
However, in most cases such as this, regardless of the ingredients of the treat, ingestion of a larger than recommended amount is not going to cause any issues for the patient.
Depending on the ingredient list, diarrhea might be seen within 12-24 hours with vomiting also a possibility although not a strong one.
If looser stools do develop, a bland diet of boiled chicken and white rice should resolve the problem.
More than likely, your daughter's puppy is going to be just fine. I hope this helps to reassure you both at least in some small measure. Deb
