What should I do? Will he be okay after eating a 1/3rd of a BIG bag of gummie bears that were left on the computer desk? Will he just feel sick then it will pass, or what should be done? Should I be concerned?

Umm well it sure doesnt sound good. Oh wow umm Im not much help...

I wouldn't worry too much - he'll be fine. A bit hyper from all the sugar I would assume, but should be okay. Chocolate is the real candy danger to dogs. While eating a bunch of gummy bears certainly isn't good for him, just keep an eye on him to make sure he's acting/eating/drinking okay.

He may have a case of the runs for a day or so, and may not eat as much as you think he should, but aside from that, a gummy bear colored tongue should be the only real difference you see

I'd call the vet and ask just to be safe, but aside from some possible constapation and hyper activity you should be okay. Make sure you drink lots of water though. If you dont feel like drinking try eating some ice, its a sneaky way to hydrate. smile

I had a dachshund once that ate one of those HUGE hershey's kisses you get at Valentines........She got if off of the coffee table and enjoyed the entire thing while no one was home...She was fine!

You wanna piece- of me?

Aw Farley. He'll be fine.

I'm picturing a dog chewing on gummy bears - kind of funny.

He'll definitely be fine. Our dogs love gummie bears (although we never give them more than a couple at a time). We've never had any adverse reactions from them.

Me hide??? You- betcha!!!!

Mmmmmmmmmmmm, gummi bears. I think the pup will be fine, although a tad hyper. Like others have said lack of appitite comes to mind too, but ok. Don't you just adore the abilities our dogs magically have when something as enticing as mmmmm gummi bears are around. LOL. If you are concerned I agree call the vet but, if he has the same type of sense of humor mine does well get ready. One of the dogs I had ate my CD's not chewed ate. I called the vet in hysterics in the middle of the night (don't you like the country vets) and his response to my hysterics was, "well Ms. Debbie whichever one open they mouth and music comes out, that's the one that ate em I would think." Yes he is still my vet. Dogs were fine never knew they could pass cd fragments with out trouble but... Oh it was Nellie the GSD.

Parker once ate some gummy worms... and ... erm... I never noticed until they made an appearance on the front lawn! I'm glad I figured it out BEFORE I brought the sample into the vet's. How embarassing that would have been!

I did notice he was a bit hyper the day before, but never knew what he did. Sneaky.... stole them out of my purse without disturbing it or anything else in there! Sneaky!

Ditto the others, he should be fine initially---they won't poison him or anything like that. I'd keep an eye on his poops the next couple days just to make sure he's going, but I don't think you've got too much to worry about. Of course, a call to the vet wouldn't hurt either to put your mind at ease!
