Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Bella. Since eating that steak bone, has she ate or drank? Is she seeming stressed?
Ok. If she has ate and drank water since eating that steak bone, then the chance of it being lodged in her esophagus is extremely unlikely. If something was stuck there where you could feel it in her throat area, she shouldn't be able to really eat and keep it down. You most likely are feeling the larynx area. More worrisome signs here would be vomiting as that could indicate that the bone is stuck lower in the intestinal tract. It has a decent chance of being digested and passed with no issues. If she starts to vomit or stops eating for over 24 hours, then she should be seen by your vet.
No problem. I hope all goes well for her!
