If it makes you feel any better, my sister's lab ate a whole cooked chicken carcass and was fine. Dogs

Thanks for the support.
If this were my dog I would feed him some cotton balls. SOunds funny, but the the fibers will wrap the bones (I specifically heard do this if a dog eats GLASS, so should work the same with bones).

Here is the link....

DOberluv, I would also feed the dog plenty of bulking agents.

Canned pumpkin. Steamed green beans. Shredded cabbage. This will bulk the stool, and keep things moving smoothly as the bones exit his system.

How would you get a dog to eat cotton balls? I would be worried as I have seen stuff like that cause blockages in dogs...

Yeah, I would be afraid to feed something inorganic. I just gave him some bread and his kibble. So far, he seems fine, bouncing around like usual. The vet just said to do nothing in particular and watch him for any abnormal signs. I'm thinking that speeding up peristalsis (with too much roughage) would give the hydrochloric acid in the stomach less time to work on breaking down the bones before entering small and large intestines. So, I think I'll just let his body work on them the way it's going to naturally. And hope for the best. If he doesn't feel well or looks like he's in distress, I'll get him to emergency.

Showpug...wow! Scary for your sister. Yes, I know dogs do get into these things from time to time and most of the time I think they manage all right. It's just kind of scary when you think your dog might be one that has a problem with it.


Thank you all for your ideas and support.

Sending good thoughts your way! You will know if he is not able to pass it, Gunnar was miserable when he had the blockage.
