Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before.Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How big was the bone? Did it have any sharp edges? Could she have chewed it into bits before eating it?

Are you seeing any blood or brown (coffee ground) material in her vomit?

Can she keep anything down?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing,tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Can she pass stool? Any black material?
