Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did your dog eat anything unusual?

Unfortunately he may have ate some chicken leg bones:(

Bear he just turned 1 a couple days ago. Miniature schauzer

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

I want to say he is. Since 7 this morning he hasn't been dry heaving and has been running around. He ate also. Fingers crossed whatever it was he got it worked out.
