Default Dog ate pork chops and bacon

So I ran back in the store after picking up two pork chops and a pound of bacon, only to find my 19 week old GSD had devoured both pork chops and almost the whole lbs of bacon. Im sure he is ok, but what am I in for. hes in his crate now for the rest of the night and supervised visits outside for the bathroom since im guessing it wont be pretty. he is on Orijen large breed puppy and has never had raw except one raw bone. im guessing he will just have an upset stomach for a few days? or what should i expect. ive been lurking on here since before i got him and love all the info and have read tons, but decided i would make a username and finally post after this incident.

also btw, this is him today

Make sure he gets plenty of water because of the salt in the bacon and be prepared from some very loose stools tonight.

Ok will do. In the past when he was really little I would give him kayopectate when he has loose stools. And a little pumpkin. I'm thinking about giving some preventatively tonight

Well gave both kayopectate and pumpkin last night and his poop just now was solid so he seems to be doing fine. Some stuff on the Internet said to be worried about pancreatitis? Any validity to that?

My dog, for the very first time, grabbed something off the counter. My trustworthy 4 year old now is a food theif. She ate a two pound stuffed pork tenderloin that I had just placed on the counter as the oven was preheating.

I called the vet because I read somewhere that I should have made her vomit. The vet was not available but called me the next day. She was not concerned because port tenderloin is lean, but she said the best thing would have been to make her vomit right away expecially if she ate a high fat/high salt item. Also told me to make sure she drinks, a lot.

She also mention pancreatitis and I should watch for bloody stools and the dog vomiting, neither of which happened.

She didn't even have loose stools.

pancreatitis can still occur. the levels of fat in the meats would be enough to do it.

As to slowing his gut down...people forget that diarrhea occurs because the body is trying to rid itself of something that shouldn't be there!
When you try to slow the gut down, you're working against the body. The sooner the excessive fat/meat gets out the sooner the dog will feel better.

It'd be better (in this case) to have diarrhea and get the stuff out, than keep it in and have it be flooding the dog's bloodstream with fat.

He's trying to tell you he wants to be fed raw.

Mine stole a couple of CheezIts the other day when I ran into the grocery store. I figured the only worry here would be the excess protein giving diahrea but I didn't realize it could pose that much of a problem. I had always heard that raw was ideal over kibble. I always feed my dog a morsel or two of raw beef or chicken when I am cooking dinner. Is that seriously something to worry about?

Bacon has far too much fat and sodium to use it as a raw food.
