you may want to call the vet just to be sure–i think generally dogs don’t do as well with grains like wheat. rice and potatoes are okay, but wheat i believe is harder to digest. i’m definitely not an expert though! i hope she feels better.

Ok so the computer ate my post, but I had the same recommendation as mispug.

And don’t worry, my dog has eaten the blades from a razor, pyrex glass, and a whole bar of chocolate and survived 🙂

What kind of dog do you have? Dogs sometimes can not handle food like that so they wont eat for a few days especially if it is a smaller dog. Honestly my dog wont eat if we are not home, I guess it stresses him out? And….the other day he ate the half batch of carmel candy bar brownies he managed to get off the counter and uncovered. After some peroxide to bring it up, he was fine. But then again, he was fine after he ate it too? My dog is like a garbage disposal.

The only reason I would worry is if your dog has allergies to any of the ingredients but you would know that by now.  Miss Pug is right in that wheat isn’t highly digestible for dogs but neither is corn or beet pulp (two VERY common fillers in dog food.)  All that means is that your dog won’t get much nutritional value out of it, not that it will be in her stomach forever.  Just keep an eye on her and let her out to go to the bathroom as much as she needs to.  If her stools are runny try feeding her a couple tablespoons of active culture yogurt or plain canned pumpkin.  If she seems really “off” or uncomfortable call your vet but there shouldn’t be any side effects other than a tummy ache, much like we would get if we did the same thing.

I would stop feeding her dog treats.  Honestly if she’s still eating those, she’s fine.  She’s just being picky!

Some people actually feed their dogs on a gorge/fast schedule like she’s doing now since that’s how wolves typically eat.  I haven’t looked into it and don’t know how recommended it is, but I’m not surprised that she’s not wanting to eat. 

My dog once gorged himself on ruined venison that we had to throw out and didn’t eat for a few days.  He was no worse for the wear but I was sure annoyed by how often I had to let him out to potty!

I would try giving her some Mylanta or Pepto Bismal to help with the tummy ache and bloating. Our vet reccommended that to us when our puppies first started having stomach problems (they have very sensitive tummies) or you could try benefiber in her water or a children’s laxative to get things moving, all of which has been reccommend by our vet so its safe. Just make sure she’s drinking enough so she doesn’t get dehydrated and you may want to try and get her to drink some broth or eat yogurt.

Sorry about your baby, she shoud be just fine 🙂
