We had a member here lose her dog due to ingesting a chicken bone! Be very careful. I would call the vet for sure!

Tiffany got a hold of a chicken bone once (I was walking her right after the garbage was picked up, and I think it fell out of someone's garbage can). I had her x-rayed at the vet and it looked ok, but they did suggest that I give her a piece of white bread that day, and another piece the day after. The bread was supposed to cushion the piece of bone and help her pass it. So that might be another thing to try.

Ok now he seems to be acting off!! He hasn't vomited... He's just laying around.. I made him some rice and he doesn't want it. He won't eat his treats and he keeps stretching his legs out!! Like he walks and pushes his legs back. He ate some grass but he always does that... I called the vet and she said 36 hours it should all be digested! She said she will see him in am if he keeps acting weird! Of course tomorrow I have 50 people over for a Christmas party.. I am a nervous wreck... I had a good cry ... I feel a little better...

I would find an emergency vet just to be on the safe side. If the bone has lodged in his digestive system, he will not want to eat and will be uncomfortable. I've never heard of whole bones digesting but would be very concerned that it would be causing a blockage.

This can be very serious - we have a member who lost a beloved fluff due to a chicken bone, so I wouldn't take any chances.

I would take my pup to an emergency vet and have an x-ray done.

Please don't wait--I have a friend who also lost a dog last year w/a part of a baby pacifier---a bone would be even more lethal. Act now, please.
