My dog swallowed a cooked chicken bone off of a rotisserie

My dog swallowed a cooked chicken bone off of a rotisserie chicken on Sunday 8/14. He passed it on 8/16- fully intact. He has been acting fine. No signs of discomfort. No blood in the stool. No signs upon exam. Eating and drinking normal. However, he is only pooping once a day. I see his belly protrude out when he is full, but for some reason he is not going. When he finally does go, he does not seem like he is having trouble.

Dr. Salkin - & Little Man here - New Question regarding hind

Hello again Dr. Salkin - Judy & Little Man here - New Question regarding hind leg paralysis - before this journey began Little Man was having trouble eating his kibble - he would like do that reverse sneeze or rather looked like maybe he was eating too fast and it wasn't going down wrong...that may not be related to this question but wanted to include. I read something on the internet somewhere about a dog loosing it's voice could cause paralysis in the hind quarters (can't remember where I saw it) but here is the thing he has lost his voice - when he goes to howl there is Nothing There except at the end a short (mini) sound. It has been 2 months now and our vet says he will never walk again and as long as LM is happy and healthy I can care for him - the vet did not do an MRI or CT think because of the expense. Guess I am still searching and was wondering if this is related to the voice - what is it, is there a potential for a cure if diagnosed and of course could he walk again? So there ya have it - Hope all is well with you and look forward to chatting with you again: ) Paws forever and a day! Judy & Little Man

I had read the health benefits of feeding my puppy some raw

I had read the health benefits of feeding my puppy some raw fruits or vegetables aside from just puppy chow and kibble, I of course looked into which fruits were best and which to avoid, Grapes being the number one avoidance across the board, but cherries was a mixed in results. In the past 2 days I have given as a small meal enhancer our 7 month Chihuahua/York Terrier 4 cherries sliced very very thinly not even getting down too much to the pit, and discarding the stem and pit. She also tried an organically grown, bell pepper from my dad's garden where I cut it into strips and then each strip into about 5 to 7 squares (she had that twice). I have now read more up on cherries and the toxicity of cyanide that are in cherries and am so so worried now that I may have already inadvertently dangered our puppy even while all signs show she is doing fine on the outside, I am worried. Please help.

I have a litter of 8 puppies. They are 8 weeks old. My vet

I have a litter of 8 puppies. They are 8 weeks old. My vet gave them shots and dewormer at 6 weeks. He also gives me Ponzuril to administer for prevention of Coccidia. Yesterday one puppy had a loose stool. It was brown like pudding. It cleared up today. But this evening another one got the same thing. They are both eating and drinking and running and playing. I keep the kennel clean and change out the water 2 times a day. They have no fever and the room is puppy proofed. I am puzzled and wondered if There is anything I can do until I can get to my vet tomorrow? Just worried! I am puzzled.

I have a Portuguese Water Dog. Now 2 years old. She will

I have a Portuguese Water Dog. Now 2 years old. She will throw up stomach acid every so often in the morning if I try taking her for a walk before she eats. Leads me to believe it's due to her stomach being empty too long? From the research I've done online. I had switched her to meals 3x a day with last one before bed around 9-10pm. This fixed the issue for a while but it's come back. She won't even eat breakfast until around 1pm now and when trying to walk almost everytime within minutes she's trying to eat as much grass as possible then throws up. Only stomach acid comes out along with the grass. What can I do? My vet here hasn't been helpful thus far.

My dog has been diagnosed with stomach ulcers and has been

My dog has been diagnosed with stomach ulcers and has been prescribed sucralfate. She was fine for a couple of days and today has vomited each time shortly after taking her meds. Could this be the Sucralfate?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?Customer: No.JA: OK. The Veterinarian will know what to do. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Her name is Zoey. She is an 8 year old toy poodle.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Zoey?Customer: No. We just had blood work done and other than a slight low red blood cell count (from the ulcer bleeding a bit) she is pretty healthy.
