Butter Emergency Help

Ok so some of you saw my practice Lemon Meringue Pie on facebook. Well tomorrow Im making the real deal. Tonight I am making the crust to freeze per expert advice. Well I must have accidentally dropped a STICK OF BUTTER AND DID NOT KNOW.

Yes you know where I am going. This new crust recipe calls for no butter, so I didn't miss it. Until I heard slurp slurp slurp. Goldie was eating the stick of butter!!! She got about half down before I took it.

Should I be freaking? Can this hurt her???????

She is wiping her face all over the carpet now trying to get more butter in her mouth and blessing the rent house carpets with stains that smell better.

UTOH.

I searched Google, and according to Yahoo! Answers, your dog may vomit, but that's more because the butter will be very heavy in his stomach. You could also see diarrhea later, because of the high fat content. Cooked rice may help his stomach a bit.

Uh Oh a lube job...I am no expert but anytime I have had dogs consume larger amounts of fats than they are used to I would expect barf and or diarrhea in your future.

Oh gosh----I have no idea. Can you quick google it? One night I was at the vets working when an emergency call came about a dog who ate a package of oreo cookies. The dog was about 60 pounds.....come to find out (Doc asked me what I thought probably to see if I'd guess correctly) and I said no....not much actual chocolate and it turns out I was right..but Doc looked it up on line somewhere. Wish I knew where!

My guess would be a 1/2 stick....though not good for her she should be ok. Actually if she was mine...I'd google it quick or just call the vet and ask over the phone giving her weight. If it's not toxic in any way...I'd give her a slice of plain bread to give her some bulk....she'll probably have diaherra and this could help. I'm not being funny....I'm serious about the bread.

Melissa~ Years ago we had a mutt who ate a whole stick of butter and was fine. He had a cast iron stomach and ate many things he shouldn't have. He weighed a lot more than little Goldie, though. Not sure if 1/2 a stick would hurt her, or not.

Sorry I can't be more help

Oh, no, Melissa! What a mess I bet you're gonna have when that butter works its way through her! I wouldn't be surprised if she gets a tummy ache, which won't be fun for either of you. I have no expertise, but don't don't think it will be dangerous for her, though.

Good luck!

My brother's doberman has eaten a few sticks of butter over the years and she's fine. But she's a big dobie and eats everything and anything she can get a hold of. A puppy in my puppy class several months ago had also eaten a stick of butter and besides some majorly gross diarrhea, she was ok too.

Good luck! You might have a long night tonight

Thanks guys. Not to mention Stogie found the dog food I take with me on the weekends in my duffle bag and its not scattered ALL OVER my bedroom. What a night.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

If you can get her to eat a plain ole' piece of bread --do it. It'll bulk her up and help absorb all that butter.
