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 wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long ago did he eat the bone? Was it eaten whole or did he chew it to bits?

Can he keep water down?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?

Any straining to pass stool or black stool?

Is the vomit brown or like coffee grounds in appearance?

No worries, I am glad to hear that he is being seen & I will send your question back to customer service just now.

Take care,

Dr. B.
