I think you'd better call your vet or poison control. Bag Balm has lots of petroleum jelly and lanolin in it. I don't know how much fat may be in the lanolin (pancreatitis risk?), and I don't know how safe petroleum jelly is when ingested in large quantities.

Just call the vet, there's NO emergency, nothing toxic. She will probably get diarrhea OR not... that thing is just grease...

I also called the bag balm company and they said the same thing..

My girl's a sheep fan, too, but she gets her jollies from wool:

I had bought the wool for a knitting class, so basically--the dog ate my homework.

What a relief! Our Iceman swallowed a nylon leash, minus the clip. We didn't even know until he threw it up 3 days later, in one piece. We were terrified! Called the evet who said "if he eats, poops, and acts happy, don't worry."

With that much Bag Balm, things should just slide right out. :)

this is not funny (:lol::lol: :lol: )

 

Updates post evening walk
1 huge greasy pile of poop (good think I went for the walk in the "woods" near the bicycle path! did not even think of picking-it up! OMG)... had to put Abbey in the bathtub arriving home to get her butt clean-up..one thing for sure; her butt will be well moisturized lol Now she wants her supper..DH don't want to feed her yet.. it will be a long evening/night...
she is farting crazy... :sick
and her butt is "leaking" greasy :sick
I put old blankets on her bed and the sofa (old sofa)... she will sleep on the first floor tonight... no access to hour bed for sure!!

Poison control???? Nah.

 

My cats LOVE to lick my hand when I've put bag balm on my fingers! In fact I believe they used to prescribe ingesting Vaseline Petroleum jelly for constipation in cats!

 

The stuff is made to slather on the udder of a cow. It's not toxic.

That is not always the case. Some foods become toxic depending on the amount consumed, nutmeg for example. So while it seems bag balm is okay it is always best to err on the side of caution if large amounts of a questionable substance are consumed.

It was a 10 ounces container.. around 7-8 ounces was in it..

 

Update

24 hours after eating the bag balm; things are back to normal. The poop was firmer. End of this adventure...

I guess Abbey wanted to make sure I had a memorable birthday LOL

Jeter thanks Abbey for the menu idea -- he loves Neosporin and bitter apple, and is looking to expand his choices.

 

And happy birthday. Glad Abbey is okay.
