|huntergreen||rule#1, never trust a dog to guard your food. also translates to, don't trust your dog around people food.|

|apenn0006||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?|

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.

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.

|MurderedAsRX||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?|
