Thankfully, there's nothing toxic in that honey baked ham. Luly had a nice snack. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but she wasn't intoxicated and so there's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.

Okay, thanks! It was probably a 6 inch by 3 inch piece of ham, mostly because she's little. I was just worried about pancreatitis. Should she be okay one it passes thru her system. A little Pepto okay?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

You're quite welcome. The fat content in that ham doesn't constitute a risk for pancreatitis. Yes, I would be surprised if you saw any adverse effects from her inappropriate ingestion. Pepto Bismol can be dosed at in the wide range of 0.1 - 1 mL per pound of body weight at 6-8 hour intervals. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

It is a conversation we (dog people) had at the off leash today. One person said that a dog should never be given cheese as it cuases pancreatitis.
