Yes, unfortunately, cooked bones can easily splinter (more than raw bones), so this poses a danger to your dog and his digestive system. For the moment, feed him some soft bread and canned dog food, and hopetully, this will pass out of his system, naturally, without a problem. However, it might be a good idea to have him evaluated in person by a vet, now, so the location of the bone and/or any splinters can be seen on x-ray and he can be treated so the bone won't cause any serious damage.

I hope all will be well with your furry boy.
