Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today! Please give me a few moments to type my response and I will be right back!

Depending on what was moldy (bread versus meat) and how much likely she won't have any issues with the ingestion.

It would be a good idea taking a few precautions today:

- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days
- Leash walks to help the food pass more readily of >15 minutes twice daily
- Tonight bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if she shows this symptom

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know who else I can assist you both today
