Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your situation with Schatzi. Is she acting normally since eating the bacon? Any vomiting?
Ok, that is great news. I would just recommend continuing to monitor her then. It is quite possible, if she doesn't have a sensitive stomach, that she will have not ill effects from eating this bacon. Some dogs do have a more sensitive stomach and may experience vomiting or diarrhea. The things we worry about with raw meat include bacterial contamination and in pork a worm called trichinella. Luckily with just a one time ingestion of raw meat, unless we are unlucky, the risks are low. But, because there is a risk, if she does develop vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, lethargy, or decreased appetite, I would recommend bringing her in for her vet to examine her.
Just checking to see how your dog was doing today? Did she get an upset stomach at all?
