Friend, as you have suspected it is likely that her symptoms are related to the ingestion of the bone. My concern is if the bone perforates the intestinal tract the outcome is likely fatal. For this reason it is best to not wait and have her checked tonight by ER veterinarian. A quick xray will let the attending vet know if the bone is passing or obstructed. Do Not wait. My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
