Dogs are very funny little creatures because they do so many funny things. Some dogs chase their tails and some dogs eat cat poop. Regardless of what type of dog you have, they are sure to do something weird and kind of shocking. One thing that dogs have a tendency to do is eat strange things. As I mentioned earlier, some dogs eat cat poop and most dogs eat grass. What happens though when your dog eats chicken bones? The following will go over what to do when your dog eats chicken bones.

All the funniness goes out the window when your dog eats up chicken bones because they can potentially be dangerous to your dog’s health. In most cases, when a dog eats uncooked chicken bones , you don’t really have to do anything. You should still call your local vet and see if there is anything you should do. If your dog eats cooked chicken bones, that is when you must be concerned. Call your local veterinarian and tell them what has happened. They should recommend something for you to do. One thing they may consider you doing is feeding your dog a big can of pumpkin. This should overstuff your dog and make them vomit. Look for the bones in the throw up.

In the case where your vet tells you to wait out the chicken bones, you will want to inspect the dogs poop and see if the bones are in it. If there is blood in the dog’s poop, take your dog to the vet right away because a chicken bone might have punctured something. If your dog looks in pain or is whimpering after the chicken bone eating, take it to the vet and see if the bones are stuck somewhere in the dog’s body.

Chicken bones are bad for your dog’s health because they are sharp and can damage internal organs. Always cal your vet to see what you should do when this happens. Constantly check the dog’s poop for a week or so until you see the bones in it. If you see blood, immediately take your dog to the vet in order to fix the blood situation. Dogs do funny things like eating weird things. Sometimes the things they eat can be dangerous like chicken bones. It is good to know what to do when things like this occur. You maybe potentially saving the life of your beloved dog.
