Hope Willow is ok. Our first lab ate a Christmas cake and apart from an upset stomach for a couple of days was fine. Fingers crossed.

I had this happen on Boxing Day one year, thought it was quiet where was Bumble, went looking and she skulked out of the dining room, and on the table was the Christmas cake with 1/4 of it missing! Boy did she have wind afterwards and a sorry expression for 48 hours.
I am sure Willow will be fine but thankfully you acted fast to get her help well done!

We are back home. She had a sickness injection (which made her look very sorry for herself) and reproduced the 6 christmas cake slices.. still cake shaped! She swallowed them whole! Followed by an anti sickness injection (which kicked in in less than 5 min) and she was back to her normal waggy self. She seems to be feeling fine and running around. Scrambled egg for dinner then normal food tomorrow.
Marks bank balence is £180 lighter.

Mark's bank balance will eventually recover, it's Willow that's the most important and it sounds as though she's going to be just fine.

Glad she will be fine, maybe a few presents lighter but you certainly did the right thing. Pity you have a cake to make!

Sorry about the loss of lots of ££££££ but you did the right thing, it wasn't worth taking a risk with Willow's life.
There is a chap who go's on Rushcliffe country park who has Dizzy the male black lab, who also ate a christmas cake a couple of years ago, it was really serious and touch and go whether Dizzy would survive.
What happened to Dizzy certainly put me on my toes.
So glad you acted so quickly and Willow is wagging her tail again.
Take care.
Gary and Toby.
