Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Hopefully Jake had chewed much of this bone but to be sure, give him 2 tablespoons of Vegetable oil every 6 hrs. This will help he remaining pieces of the bone to slide through his digestive tract. There is a chance that it may be too large to make it through and cause an obstruction. The only thing you can do is watch for any signs including vomiting and lethargy. If you see any of these signs, you will have to seek veterinary attention. In most cases, however, Jakes system will dissolve much of this with stomach acid and the oil will help this slide through.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
