    Pale gums is an emergency (shock) I would not delay getting him to the vet if I were you. Don't try to make him eat, he may need surgery. I would certainly not feed a Dane gravy or other carbohydrates under any circumstances, the risk of bloat/torsion is too great with Danes. Good luck to your boy.

    Hope your dane is okay. But do not feed gravy. Gravy is so high in fat it can actually lead to liver failure over time. Try making some chicken broth or beef broth. All you need is some chicken bones (what is left after you eat a baked chicken) simmer that for a few hours then take the bones out and toss them, what you are left with is completely safe to give to your dog.
    you can also opt to add meat into that and feed a home cooked diet to your dog for a few days til he's feeling better.

    also weird things to ask but how is your dogs poop? When a dog is getting sick or acting strange it's time to start checking out their poop. If they are pooping. If your dog hasn't gone in a few days go to the vet it means there is a blockage which can cause pale gums and not wanting to eat.

    Were you ever part of Marine Hills Garden Club? I was for a few years - until my twins were born in 2004. After that, I was unable to attend any more.

    Edited for spelling. Ugh!

    That is so adorable. The little pipped egg you posted last night is my favorite part of the hatch. So exciting to see that little pip.

    I'm trying to talk DH into letting me get one of those incubators, but he doesn't want chicks brooded in the house. I told him I will just hatch when a broody is sitting.
