Hello and welcome! I am Dr. Christina, a licensed veterinarian, here to help answer your questions today. I see that you are inquiring about your dog eating a Reuben sandwich, is that correct?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I am very glad that you are here. Is Bubbles acting differently today?

Is she vomiting or having diarrhea?

No but she has not had a stink after eating the sandwich
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No

She is playing & wants to eat more

The good news is that she's not vomiting and still wants to eat. That would be the biggest worry with eating something like that.

I would add some canned pumpkin to her food twice a day. 1 tablespoon twice a day. this will help with colonic contractions to help her get the poop out if she's constipated. As long as she's not straining to poop, I would just wait it out.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

It's possible she's a little constipated. Is she eating normally?

You're welcome. Can I answer anything else for you?

No thank you for Bubbles and not her not so careful care giver.

You're welcome. Good luck!
