Dog ate baking soda. (Or maybe it was baking powder?) The dog ate the baking soda or the baking powder. What should she do?
I would go with the baking powder. While the soda will make her vomit, it's a bit of a stretch. It's possible she was thinking baking powder was for cakes, but it's quite common in breads.
Baking powder reacts to an acidic ingredient, such as acid in the saliva, or in the leavening agent itself (in sourdough recipes), to produce a gas. That gas rises and makes the bread rise. It's a little less common to use baking powder for a non-cake situation, but it's not unheard of. If you can get in there, replace it with baking powder. You can't be too careful!
You should replace it with baking powder. It's not that bad to replace a chemical, it's just not as common to see baking soda used for anything other than baking.
I'd say that you should try replacing it with baking powder. You can't be too careful. If you are not sure, try to see if the dog would prefer some of the yeast to get mixed in the baking soda. It's not likely that your dog would eat enough of the baking soda to cause problems, but you can't be too careful!
If you want to replace it with baking soda, it's probably safe enough to do so, but you'd want to replace with baking soda and not baking powder if you want to avoid the possibility that the dog could mistake it for baking powder and have a bad reaction.
