My Dog Ate Chicken Bones – What Should I Do Now?
If you have ever wondered what should you do if your dog ate chicken bones, then read on! If not, well, it’s just chicken legs after all.
I am sure many of us have had our dogs eat something they shouldn’t or even eaten something that was off limits like raw meaty parts from another animal. While there are no hard and fast rules, here are some guidelines:
1) If your dog does not seem ill or sickened by the food, then leave it alone.
Your dog may have been eating something else before coming across chicken bones and gotten sick because of it. You need to let him/her rest first.
2) If your dog seems unwell or is vomiting within 10 minutes of eating the chicken bones, call your vet immediately.
3) If your dog vomits within 5 minutes of eating the chicken bones, call your vet immediately.
4) If your dog doesn’t vomit within 15 minutes of eating the chicken bones, then don’t worry too much about it.
Call your vet again if necessary.
So what should you do now?
Well, if the above guidelines make you feel any concern, then please follow them. Your dog’s health is the most important thing, and you must remain vigilant of any potential issues.
Always remember that you know your dog best. If you feel like your dog has an issue, then find a vet NOW. Don’t waste time worrying about whether what your dog ate was okay or not.
It’s better to be safe than sorry.
That’s all I have to say on this issue. Thanks for reading! Now go play with your best friend!
