Thank u all for your replies and good wishes. Apparently Rocco ate something that didn't agree with him. We don't know what it was. However, there is no obstruction. Only some inflammation and a lot of gas. He is on anti inflammatory and bland diet (probably starting tomorrow). Poor baby...Really worried... please help!-imageuploadedbypg-free1354058966.102407.jpg

That's a relief!
I'm willing to bet the ham bone was too rich for him...in the future, only raw bones should be given, or none at all. Scraps are okay but cooked bones can wreack havoc on their digestive tracts.

Thanks. I'm not ever letting him have bones again. I didn't even want him to have it in the first place. It was hubby that gave it to him. Urg!

Oh no! Well I hope he learned his lesson

My dad drove me nuts and still does occasionally give his dog bones, and I warned him of the dangers...he's very "old school" and will sneak the dog a bone.
What's most interesting is that a dog will go nuts over a piece of bread with a bit of coconut oil on it as much as nuts over a bone!
It's humans that think it's more awesome for a dog to get a bone

Just went through this with Rudy. I know how scarey it is when they won't eat. Turns out he had gotten into a bag of pepperoni and pepperjack cheese. No diarrhea, just wouldn't eat. Vet gave us Flagyl. Well, he HATED that and wouldn't eat b/c of it. So if your dog is on that, make sure you wrap it in something so the taste doesn't get in your dog's mouth.
Once the flagyl was stopped, he went back to eating. I gave him boiled chicken and hamburger for a few days, and Pepcid AC. Little rat, wouldn't eat without the chicken for an extra week.
In fact, it's been three weeks and I am about to cook him some chicken for tomorrow morning............
Glad you got to the bottom of it and it was nothing terrible.

I hope Rocco is 100% soon! And I hope you can breath a little easier now too. That kind of stress sucks.

What is the anti-inflammatory?

cooked bone - not good at all
Raw bone - excellent for mental and physical stimulation as well health properties and clean teeth.

It is not human's that impart the ideology of bones on dogs...humans do that with drugs however - dogs eat bones always have and always should - RAW

Some raw bones should not be given - for instance, weight bearing bones can break dog's teeth.
Many dogs become ill as well from the marrow in some bones.

i have always gotten some bones from the butcher, good size cow and lamb bones. never an issue, except upsetting the wife when it sort of left a "mark" on the new carpet. butcher leaves just enough meat on it so the my dogs really go to town on them.
