Hi there. Thanks for the question . I'm sorry you had to wait awhile for a response. If your dog seems to be feeling fine, just keep an eye on him. He may have gotten all the bone out with the vomiting. If the vomiting, retching or dry heaving continues, then get him to a vet right away.notherwise feed him his normal diet but not for about 6 give the stomach some more time to empty. If he vomits as soon as you try feeding him or he is depressed and won't eat, then get to the vet. I hope this helps. Take care.
