When it comes to any type of food ingestion, whether that's old or food that's not old, we always worry about vomiting and diarrhea. Typically, it's the smaller of the two dogs who usually has stomach issues, so I would keep a very close eye on your rat terrier. Labs tend to have a stronger stomach, hopefully that means he will do just fine.If you see any vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, refusal to eat, drink, wobbling when walking, retching and producing no vomiting, straining to produce stool, etc. you'll need to have the pup in question seen by a vet. In the meanwhile, keep feeding them normally and otherwise carry on like nothing happened. If you are going to see signs of concern, it should be within the first 48 hours to follow ingestion of the food in question.You may wish to obtain some famotidine, just in case. This can help settle a dog's stomach if they are feeling unwell. Dosing instructions are available here: http://www.veterinaryplace.com/dog-medicine/famotidine-for-dogs/ and you can give it prophylactically for a few days if you wish. It won't hurt either of them.If my answer has helped you, please take the time to leave positive feedback for me. This is the only way that I am compensated for helping you today.
