I looked it up what we used before because I'm quite curious. There were other curious people out there! Leaves, snow and corncobs! Apparently they used to hang a dry corncob in the outhouse. They used magazine pages too but not everyone got those

Snow is actually not as bad as it sounds. Cleaned then some alternatives.

My pup Gunnar did the same exact thing with his first piece of chicken wing. I was a nervous wreck but he had no problems. After that I put on my dish washing gloves and held the piece of meat so that he had to chew. Now that he is older, (4 months) he chews it nicely on his own.
I would think your pup will be just fine, but it sure makes you nervous. Gunnar was panting that evening and I thought that he was gonna be sick or worse but it was just me over-reacting.

Mona, don't worry too much. The chicken bones that cause the perforation problems that vets uneducated in the ways of feeding dogs like to scare people with are cooked; the raw ones don't splinter like that and dogs' atomic gastric secretions take care of the raw ones, as well as most food-poisoning type bugaboos that would send us to worship at the shrine of the porcelain god.

Those kinds of vets like to sell their clients over priced Science DIEt and Eukanuba products. They mean well, but . . .

Just one word of warning for the future, don't feed things like wings unless you have a TINY dog. I too have a "gulper" who one swallowed an entire chicken neck.. It scared me to death. He was fine, but now he doesn't get anything much smaller than his head. It forces him to chew his food.

Thanks to all.
I'm feeling much better after reading your posts. Murphie seems totally fine. But I confess I won't be totally relaxed till she has a few bm's. Perhaps next time I'll hold it or give her a bigger chunk so she is forced to chew.
all the best,
Mona

I give my dogs chicken and fish bones which are tinier. Dogs systems were meant to digest bones. They've been eating them for thousands of years. And unless they are cooked they don't splinter. My kids sure enjoyed their fish today.
