She has diarrhea, she...

She has diarrhea, she ate ribs. I did not givr them to her, she found them. Now she had a complete blow out and I saw all the bones she consumed. Do you think I should take in to get seen or you think I can give a bland diet?

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 and age?

Her name is ***** ***** she will be 1yr this April

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Roxy?

She is not up to date with her vaccines

Ok thank you
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I believe so. But how to be sure and will it harm her?

so the only way to be sure is an xray and when my clients call with this type of situation I always recommend they bring their dog in for bloodwork and xrays.......

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

yes, unfortunately I have seen patients die from eating these bones if they are not treated....

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

The best option is to have your dog seen by an ER vet and a complete blood count should be done along with abdominal xrays....

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok. She did have a little blood in it. She's acting pretty normal.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok thank you for that! I will do that

They may need to do IV fluids, antibiotics and give drugs to protect the intestinal tract.....how she is acting now doe snot tell you what may happen......I do not play around with these ....
