Help, my dog ate cooked chicken bones! Do I need to take my dog to the vet if he ate bones??
We have all been there… You get distracted during the game while your favorite team is scoring the game winning touchdown, only to find that Tank has managed to eat the bones of every last hot sauce coated wing carcass that laid on the table. Your vet has told you to never give your dog cooked bones including chicken bones, steak bones, ribs and ham bones, but why are these things so bad for your dog – aren’t they built to digest bones? Before you rush Tank off to the vet to have his wing-filled tummy x-rayed, here are some home remedies to make your pet feel better, along with distress signs to watch out for to make sure your dog will be able to pass the bones ok.
