Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.
Most bones will be digested by the stomach
acid and then pass normally. This applies to chicken
, beef and pork bones. We will on occasion find one that gets stuck in the intestine, but more often than not it will break down and pass.
To help them move a little easier, I like to bulk up the diet in these dogs. To do this, you can take the dog's normal daily food amount and split it into 3-4 small meals to give every 6-8 hours. This will help keep things moving.
If you notice any vomiting or anorexia, then get the dog seen to make sure there is no obstruction or perforation. It would be uncommon, but it's something to keep an eye
on for the next 2-3 days.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
