Diesel7602 I was always told that you shouldn't give dogs chicken bones because they will choke on them. But I've read allot of people giving their dogs them. So is this just a myth?

counter And my dogs will always throw up any larger chunks of bone that they swallowed whole and could not digest. Sometimes it comes back up within hours, sometimes days later. They have never had any internal issues due to swallowing large bones or from throwing them back up. Hope this helps!

It's OK. That's how you'll learn. That's how I've had to learn. And it's good to come on here and ask your questions to get answers and feel safe as you learn through experience. That's the main reason I come on this board.

I agree that he might have just broken it up. Don't worry.

counter Was it a cooked chicken bone from the garbage? Or a raw uncooked bone? My dogs are on a raw diet and eat bones all the time. If the bone is uncooked, it won't do anything to their insides, normally. Cooked bones are very bad for them. If your dog threw it back up, and the bone looks in tact, then just monitor him and hopefully he will be OK. It's when they chew up the cooked bones, breaking them into shards that can pierce their insides. This usually requires surgery and can cost thousands of dollars.

My dogs will sometimes chew up bones and swallow pieces too big to digest, like the knot on a turkey drumstick, and they will throw up the large bone mass 2-3 days later. They have never been harmed by doing this, but again, the bones are raw, not cooked.

Hope this helps.

Swallowed largish bone

My 10 week old puppy regurgitated this evening a chicken leg bone about 2.5" to 3" in length this evening. He did not show any abnormal symptoms or behaviors today, and it was about 10 hours since his last feeding. So, my guess is he was throwing up due to an empty stomach. What has me concerned is the size of the bone as this means he did not chew it but rather swallowed it nearly whole. I am worried what this might do to his insides.
