Default Chicken Bone

Ari and his Harry houdinie self strikes again!!! I believe he ate a chicken wing bone... The boys ate at kitchen table and left their plates I went to the rest room and when I came out he had one in his mouth .. I wrestled it away from him and tried to count them all. I really don't know how many there were to start with! What should I look for? Aren't they really hazardous to them ... I'm just sick now with worry!

I would call my vet(even if he's not choking) but that's how I am.

I would for sure call your vet and see what they say.

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Calling the vet for some advice and things you should look for will definately ease your mind.

Cooked chicken bones are one of the most dangerous things a dog can get to. The bones are soft and easily splinter in addition to a choking or obstructive hazard. I'd call your vet just to make sure and watch for any signs of GI discomfort, breathing abnormalities, abnormal stools, vomiting, etc...

I wouldn't call the vet for advice, I would just make an appointment as soon as possible.
