Hello again,

Hopefully Annabelle will get away with this, however I have worked out a fuller answer for you below ...

1. The best thing to do here is to just sit it out, monitor her and see what happens. In my experience most dogs will get way with this, but this is all you can now do at present as it is not recommended to make dogs sick to recover solid sharp objects like the chicken wings as the bones could cause damage to the throat on the way back up. That said if this has happened in the last hour then feeding your dog some slices of bread or some mashed potato is a good idea, you see the potato or bread may form round any sharp bone fragments at help protect your dog's alimentary tract as the fragments pass along. This may well help ...

2. When you think about it wild dogs and feral dogs will be doing this on a daily basis and this is the way they are adapted to feed as opportunistic feeders and scavengers. For your dog to swallow this chicken wing whole means it should be small enough to pass OK. Also some digestion and softening of chicken bones is possible in your dog's stomach and this will greatly help as well.

3. However there are no guarantees and occasionally in the past at my clinic I have seen problems. You would be therefor wise to monitor your dog for such signs as vomiting, lethargy, not eating, straining or abdominal pain and of course consult your vet without delay if you do see such symptoms. This would be unlikely though ...

4. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Annabelle's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
