What To Do If Your Dog Eats a Cooked Bone
My dog ate a cooked chicken bone last night and I kind of freaked out. Everyone knows that cooked bones are bad for dogs, and if you don't you should. I have had him for over 10 years and he hadn't eaten a cooked chicken bone until yesterday. Here are some important things I learned that could help you deal with the situation if it ever happens to you.
I did freak out but you should keep you cool and make sure to clean up any other chicken that your dog might get into. Keep calm because most likely they will be ok. Actually, feed them an extra meal to help cushion the bone splinters in their digestive tract.
If your dog has already ate the bone, just let him be. Do not try to induce vomiting because the bone could cause damage on the way back up. Watch for signs of choking or the bone stuck in your dogs throat: salivating, drinking a lot, or uneasiness.
Even though your dog will probably be ok, it is best to consult with your vet for specific instructions and so they are aware if any complications arise.
After you complete all the above steps, observe your dog for around 48 hours. If they have perforated bowl (punctured), they will show signs like :shallow breathing, stretching as if trying to remove something, vomiting, bloody stole, problems dedicating,or a general change in mood.
