Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your concerns about Watson.

Leave it to a boxer pup to find some mischief. He will be just fine as the acids in his stomach will dissolve all parts of the bird ( or he may just vomit it back up). He will not pick up any diseases from the bird, regardless of what it died from, because there is nothing that can be passed from the bird ( dead & all ). This is a common & everyday occurrence in the lives of many young dogs, so nothing to worry about.

I hope this makes sense & you find the information helpful. Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you.
