Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

Most likely the pieces of bone have been released but have irritated her throat so bad that the hacking cough contnues. Check again to eb sure that all pieces have been removed and now start her on Robitussin DM, 1 teaspoon per 20 pounds of Justice's weight every 8 hrs to calm down the cough.

Certainly, if this continues, take her to your vet Monday morning to be sure.

Does that make sense to you?
