    DefaultHelped herself to extra food!! (quick advice appreciated!)

    Hi

    My pup helped herself to about 200-300grams of treats after we left the storage door open by mistake. I'm just wondering if this is any cause for concern? She's running around fine, does not seem to be in pain and stomach does not look swollen. I also pressed her stomach in and she didn't wince. Amount she ate is about 2 times her usual daily feed. I'm wondering if this is a cause for concern (bloating etc).. is this amount of food enough to cause bloating that's dangerous?

    Thanks

    I guess this isn't very quick (6 hours later) but by now if she seems okay she probably is. I wouldn't be surprised with soft stools however.
    Good Luck

    Yeah, she's OK. I read some horror stories online about dog bloating so was worried quite a bit but she has shown no symptoms and looks healthy. Thanks for your concern!!

    Also good to have a Dog First Aid book on hand.
