Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. I'm very sorry to hear about Molley's situation. I've seen similar cases at my ER where bone ingestion has caused fecal impaction. Basially the bone has caused the stools to become hard like concrete with points pushing out of it that are extremely irritating to painful to try and pass. Those situations that I treated needed to be hospitalized for intermittent enema to help soften / break up the stools so they could pass.
