I'm sorry!!!

I have pulled my story about the dog that ate all the yeast rolls...Bloat is a very serious condition that dogs, esp big dogs get...It is life threatening...sooo sorry...Jan's Funny Farm reminded me how very serious it is.....again let me apologize.....Peace, Claudette

We thought the story was hilarious the first time we read it too, but since that time, we have learned that yeast dough is very dangerous for dogs to ingest. We hope you won't take offense, but we thought we would leave this information so no animals or humans will try this because the story - which we hope if fiction - is so funny.

Quoted from Better Dog Network & Humane Society: "Uncooked yeast dough is very harmful to animals. When ingested the yeast will “rise” in the stomach, causing the dough to increase to several times it’s size. Because the dough will often expand to several times it’s size, it poses the danger of expanding your pets stomach. In addition to this, fermenting dough produces alcohol. Thus, ingesting yeast dough can lead to alcohol toxicity. Symptoms include vomiting, retching, stomach discomfort, cramps, and sluggishness. Left untreated, Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus, commonly known as bloat, can be the end result. Bloat is characterized by the stomach swelling and twisting at the esophagus and/or the lower intestine. The bloated stomach obstructs veins in the abdomen, leading to low blood pressure, shock, and damage to internal organs."

that's pretty scary about the yeast dough, but it makes sense. it's a good thing our mom never bakes bread.

We know that you meant no harm with the story. It was a lesson learned about yeast and dogs for all of us. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Sorry, but think over reaction here!
The best way to get important info. over is through humour.
The yeast dough tale was funny but it's message was sooo obvious.
It would have been read by those who might have ignored a more serious post on the subject.

I think some people need to lighten up. We know you didn't mean anything by it and don't think you should have taken the story off you blog.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Rocky, We're sorry. We didn't mean for you to remove the story. We were only trying to point out the dangers after reading a comment or two posted on the story that seemed to take it seriously.

After reading a couple of the comments here, we're kind of relieved the link to our blog doesn't work. (And before anyone gets upset with us again, we're joking.)

We love your blog. And you are always so good about posting information to help others.

I think it is a good thing that Jan's Funny Farm let us know about the bad yeast if eaten when unbaked. I hope all of the moms out there that bake make sure their little furries don't eat any and get sick.
