Hello,My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I just got your questions. Sorry for any delay, since I just came online. Ingestion of large amounts of baking soda can lead to electrolyte abnormalities. A drop in potassium levels, calcium and can cause high sodium, and lead to congestive heart failure or muscle spasms. I suggest getting the Glider into an ER Vet asap and have them monitor and treat as needed.Joan
