Hello, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****; I am sorry you have this problem with Suzy; I am sure you are concerned. I will do my best to help you today. But, first, I need to ask you a few questions to be well informed and give you the best advice.
Any pre-existing medical conditions?
How are they doing?
Thank you for that information. Please give me a moment to type your answer.
The ingestion of raw bacon is not going to be toxic. Likely, you will not see any symptoms. As with any dietary indiscretion, diarrhea or vomiting are possible outcomes; otherwise, they will be fine. I recommend keeping them off food overnight; water is okay as long as they are not vomiting. Keep an eye on them; if they vomit and get diarrhea, this is what you can do:
1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium. Start them on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg for the beagle and 1/4 tablet for the pom every 12 hours for the next 2-3 days. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy.
2- No food or water for 3-4 hours. It is best to give their gastrointestinal tract time to rest.
3- After 3-4 hours, give them a small amount of water. Wait for a half-hour; if no vomiting, they can continue to have water. Leave them without food for 12 hours, then feed them a small amount of rice (50%) mixed with boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days, then wean into their regular diet.
4- If they become lethargic, stop eating, continue to vomit, etc., they should be seen by a veterinarian.
You don't need to start them on Pepcid AC or change their diet unless they are vomiting. Please take the time to re-read my answer above.
You're welcome. :)
