How do I treat a dog that is sick from eating too much fatty hamburger meat?

My dog is used to eating good quality dry dog food. But I mistakenly gave it too much burger meat which was too fatty. How do I treat this. Do I go to the vet. The dog is sick and grumpy and will not eat anything now.

Watered down Gatorade helped my dog when he ate too much meat :/ hope I helped.

Meat is their natural food...the fat is good for them, unless you added vegetable oil or something. It is true that sudden changes in diet can make them not feel well, though. He may need to see a vet if he doesn't get better soon, but in general he will get better on his own in a day or so.

How long ago did he eat it? If recently, and you want him to throw it up, have him drink some saline (eye contact) solution.

Is this a vet's recommendation?? Pls consult a vet if not. This advice seems off. Not worth gambling your pet's life over. Good luck

How do you mistakenly give fatty hamburger to a dog that only eats good dry dog food?
He has indigestion, let him alone he'll be all right, no dog has ever died from eating hamburger.

Feed the pup some rice for a couple days. If you need to induce vomiting, have him drink a small cap full of hydrogen peroxide. You can give him Pepcid too. That's what my vet told me to do. I have a sick doggy too right now :(

Give him some veggies. Too much red meat isn't good. Mix it u with a well rounded meal.
