I think my dog has a small uncooked lamb bone stuck in

Customer Question

I think my dog has a small uncooked lamb bone stuck in her...l gave her some raw lamb off cuts on Monday... Monday night she vomitted very badly, same last night, there was a small bone in the vomitted... She's quiet today, not sure if that small bone was the culprit or if another is still inside her, l took her for a walk she was running around fine, but she's not interested in eating at all?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?
Customer: No she's a lab cross 5 years old...

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Did she chew the bone to bits? Or swallow it whole?

Can she keep water down?

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

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