1. 2-1/2 hours

2. baked

3. No Symptons

Larry, bread is not toxic and most dogs will be able to digest baked bread without any problems. In some cases we can see gastric dilatation, vomiting, constipation/diarrhea. I would recommend to hold the food for the day. Keep water available and observe him. If he becomes severely lethargic, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation have him checked by family veterinarian, otherwise he should be fine.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!

Hi Larry,

I'm just following up on our conversation about Murphy. How is everything going?

Murphy is doing good so far. He shows no ill effects, however the potty runs have increased significantly. He must have a "cast iron" bowel tract. I believe he will be OK.
