Hi, Dr. W here. I'm sorry to hear that about Bolt. When did he eat the raw chicken? Could he have eaten other things in the trash as well (packaging, etc)?

I just saw the chicken skin in his dog food once he had vomited
Dog Specialist: Heath Wilkerson,
 replied 8 months ago

Okay. Unfortunately, raw chicken has a lot of bacteria, and definitely can cause gastrointestinal problems. You should go ahead and schedule an appointment with his vet today to get him started on some antibiotics so this doesn't continue all week and get worse. I hope this helps.
