Are you seeing any diarrhea or vomiting yet? How long has it been since he ate it?

Reply to Tammy Falkner's Post: Hi Thank you for responding to me and our problem.
No there is no vomiting or diarrhea. and its been about 7 hours since he ate it.
It was about 2:00 a.m.and it 8:45 a.m. now.

Just an additional note: There should not be any problems with your dog. My dogs are fed raw meat on a regular basis, bones and all.

A dogs digestive system is meant to digest raw meat, bones and all.

I would have been more worried if he ate COOKED chicken with the bones, cooked bones are dangerous since they can splinter.

I agree with TFalkner to watch for diarrhea, but it would only be the result of him eating a "new" food, not a food that was undesirable.

When you say discarded was it rotten - In most cases it shouldn't be a problem since even it had bones since uncooked chicken bones don't pose a problem for most dogs. Also if your dog was in good health it should pass through its system. remember dogs descend from hunters and scavengers so there digestive system is better built then other for handling this.

and there were no bones in the chicken
is he going to be fine
Expert:  DogGoneCafe5 replied 9 years ago.
Yes.... even Foul food (although) not recommended on a regular basis won't hurt him.   Dogs get into 'garbage' all the time.

Yes... if his 'stools' are fine and he is not vomiting, I would not worry.
