Exclamation Ate bacon grease!!!

I went out for 15 min and Chelsae ate this mornings bacon grease. GRRRRR I thought I put it away!!! It was about 1/2 cup or so. I made a whole pound today.
I guess I am in for a night of diarrhea and barf.
Should I induce vomiting? This was about 5:00 pm EST it's 5:30 now.

All I can say is Finny cleaned out the drip pan from under the George Foreman grill a couple weeks ago and never even burped. I worried about pancreatitis and gneral stomach upset, but he never had it.

Good luck, I hope she is OK!

Still crazy after all these years.

No...don't induce vomiting. Just feed some bread...like about 5 slices to help absorb that grease.

Then do expect diarrhea. Not sure about vomiting. I kind of doubt it. We use bacon grease over the dog's food on occasion with no issues.

However, keep an eye on him for a while in the future, in case he has an attack of pancreatitis. Excess fat in the diet is what causes that.

I hope he's okay...and you don't have messes to clean up!

l don't think you need to induce vomiting but if she asks to go out I wouldn't be dragging my feet. I'm sure she will be fine. Be sure to have plenty of water available because of all the salt in the bacon grease.

Tucker ate a half a jar of Vasoline once. Ugh! Poop city!
I'd watch for pancreatitis, too. If you have any doubts on what to do, call animal poison control. It will cost around 55.00 for the call though.

Honestly I would not be overly concerned. Just keep an eye on her.
Keeping with I what I guess is my new image of grossness. Our Brandi use to be so good at getting to the bacon grease. The bad part was it was from being cooked in the microwave on paper toweling. My wife would say she threw the towels in the garbage but seeing as the trash can was in a cabinet not really possible. Anyway no one would no she got it till the next day when I would be on out walk and she was try t poop. The paper towel would only come out so far on it's own and I would have to extract it the rest of the way. And they were always intact, full size, obviously Brandi was just sucking them down quickly as to not be caught in the act. Nothing any worse ever occurred and unfortunately this was NOT a one time incident.
