Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed veterinarian. If the chicken bone was pretty small then you are probably okay. But, I would feed him 1/2 slice of white bread twice per day for the next 3 days. This will help bind up any shards of the chicken bone in his GI tract so it can pass safely in his stool.

Monitor him for blood in his stool, vomiting, blood in vomitus, decreased appetite and abdominal pain.
