Default What should I do...

for a dog that ate half of a cooked chicken leg bone?!

I was taking chicken bones to the garbage and Keira jumped up and grabbed one out of my hand. She only got half and I stuck my hand down her throat to try to get it out but she swallowed it whole. She's never done anything like that before and I was not expecting it at all. Never, ever has she stolen something from me before. Grr. And of course it had to be something that could be potentially dangerous.

I gave her slices of bread to hopefully cushion anything that might be sharp... but is there anything else I should do? Was that a bad idea? We've had dogs forever but none of them have ever eaten a cooked bone since I know those are dangerous so I don't know what to do. Ugh, I can't believe this happened. I hope she'll be ok. I can't believe she did that.

I called a vet and all they said was to watch her, but didn't really give any other advice.

Kaylee has gotten into so many cooked bones it's ridiculous. I feed her bread, watch her and keep an eye on her poops.

Most likely she will be totally fine. Just keep an eye.

Duke is like Kaylee.

If there is a cooked bone that is ever available to him, he will eat it. He's never had any issues with them and they go through his system fine. I just do the same as linds and feed him bread and watch him closely.

This. Ozzy and Enzo some how busted open a locking trash can and ate the remains of a whole rotesserie cooked chicken. We gave them about half a loaf of bread each and they were fine. Watch her poop, but she should be just fine.

I'd just keep an eye on her. Likely she'll be just fine. Molly was a horrible scavenger and probably ate tons of cooked bones in her day.

You can always add some oil to that to help slick it on through. Or butter.

What others have said, chances are she'll be absolutely fine, just keep an eye on her and watch her poops.

If it makes you feel better, my old boss's sister fed her dog cooked chicken bones for almost two years before I said something to her and she never had an issue.

I give Rumor bread and tell her I'm going to kill her. She is the sneakiest scavenger to ever exist.

Just for future reference. We treat chicken bones and remains like hazardous material...between Sophie and cats if there's something yummy in there, that garbage is going downnn. We keep the eaten bones in a sealed bag in the fridge and then on garbage day they go to the sealed can at the curb.

One bone and everything will probably be fine as long as it's not a super small doggie.
