You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. Considering the history of ingesting bone, my next step would be to X-ray Ruby's abdomen to better understand if that bone is passing through her intestinal tract or, instead, has lodged causing an obstruction and the pain she's evidencing when yelping. Persistent vomiting and/or anorexia are the hallmarks of obstruction.
