My cat has just eaten a cooked lamb bone (with bits of lamb

Customer Question

My cat has just eaten a cooked lamb bone (with bits of lamb on etc).... The bone was probably approximately an inch or so so thick/wide and probably just longer than the length of a middle finger..... He chewed it all well, along with the lamb, and he used to be a stray cat so is possibly used to eating these things, but is he going to be ok? I've just read online about how cooked bones can be dangerous due to splintering etc.
