Hi, my dog ate about half box of girl scout smores cookies- they type with the grahm cracker cookie part

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is your dog's name and age?

Obi- age 9 yrs (we think)

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Obi-?

Normal pup, just lost weight recently and is in good shape. Previously had pancreatitis about a month ago, but under control now

Hi Paul, Obi got into a 1/2 box of girl scout cookies, (Smores with the grahm cracker cookie part) and a handful of m&ms. Not sure exactly when this happened, we were out for about 5 hours and found this when we got home. We got home about a 1/2 hour ago. We have no idea when she ate it.

Okay thanks

I am not too panicked here

Worst case might be some GI upset-> But we might not see anything

Suggest we keep a watch tonight

Water is fine but no more food

Update in two hours time or if vomiting

Okay?

Showing no symptoms of toxicity of effect. Just went for a walk, she was usual behavior- alert, usual fast walk, seemed to enjoy the night air.BTW- Obi is a black lab mix, 44 pounds, approx 9 years old

Great news so far.

I think all will be well but we should keep an eye out tonight anyways

Okay I will look for your update

And you can rate me now- I will leave this link open for you

We had no idea she ate this, we got home and gave her dinner. That's the only food aside from what she ate already. We feed her 3 quarter cup of Orijen fit and trim.

Okay

Dont worry

My labs did this tens and tens of times and on a much worse scale

I measured her heart rate- 82 bpm. She's been at rest for the last 45 mins.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
How often can we talk with you? Is there a time limit?

That is just fine :)
