Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a Golden Retriever that ate a pork chop bone a couple days ago. he threw up some pieces this morning.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Flynn

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Flynn?

He's healthy. He's my baby because he's a service dog and we are together all the time.

1- Do you feel comfortable in saying that he vomited most of the bone?

2- Is he lethargic?

He only vomited a little bit of the bone. he's pretty mellow, but doesn't seem more so than usual.

Friend, the concern at this point is that he could have part of the bone obstructed in the gastrointestinal tract. If it is and the bone perforates the gastrointestinal tract the outcome could be fatal. For this reason, if you have access to a vet I would have him checked today for x-rays to make sure everything is okay. If you do not have access to a vet today change his diet to rice with boiled boneless chicken or ground beef; the idea is for the rice to bind any bone fragments and help pass it in the stool while protecting the gastrointestinal tract. If he becomes lethargic, continues to vomit, pale gums, etc. I would have him checked by ER veterinarian.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
