My dog ate an entire drumstick. I don't believe she chewed it just swallowed it. She seems fine running around. Should I be worried?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Okay

These can be managed pretty well

Give 2-3 tablespoons of canned pumpkin with each meal for the next 2-3 days

That will coat the drumstick and push it through

Monitor for vomiting, inappetance, no stool or abdominal pain

Update me tomorrow

Okay?

Paul
