Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. How long ago did she eat the skull, and was there any meat on it, or only bone?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Only bone. About an hour ago

Is she having any vomiting or diarrhea?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No. She seems fine. I fed her after and gave her a small spoon full of pumpkin. Just being cautious

Okay, glad to hear she's not having any signs. Main concerns are the bones causing a GI obstruction, the main sign of which is profuse vomiting and abdominal pain. If she vomits once or twice it's okay, but if she cannot keep down any food or water, I would get her to the vet for an abdominal x-ray. The pumpkin was a good idea to coat the bones as they make their way through her stomach and intestines.

Will it hurt if feed her a a cup of pumpkin or is that overkill?

No, it will not hurt her. It is probably a good idea if she is willing to eat it.
