Cooked chicken bones - vomit or no?

Wonder JUST managed to steal a cooked chicken drumstick off the counter and chowed down. Should I induce vomiting or give him a slice of bread with some veggie oil and hope for the best? I hate the idea of vomiting bone shards, but intestines are just as important...

Sometimes my vet is nuts, but this one takes the cake. Cotton balls and vaseline plus a piece of bread. No joke...I'm calling the e-vet now.

The cotton balls and vaseline will probably work. Although I've heard cotton soaked in olive oil before with bread. It encases the bone and allows it smooth sailing through the intestins. Same recipe if your dog consumes glass or christmas tree ornaments.

Oh man...Wonder!! I've been through this before. The word 'panic' doesn't even do justice to the feeling.

I'm not so sure about inducing vomiting. I'd be afraid that bringing the shards back up might just cause more damage.

Our vet recommended a white rice diet for a few days to coat the stomach, keep an eye out for odd behavior and watch the poops. After about two days, the bones came out the other end...they were the size and shape of couscous grains, small and rounded. Stomach acids can really do a number on the bone fragments. Think rock tumbler. That's just my $.02 based on our experience. By no means am I a vet.

Speaking of...what did the e-vet say?

go to petdocsoncall.com- they might have an answer for that. My old little lhasa apso (passed away at 17) ate a whole plate and was fine. They were cooked, that's a good thing, the bones are softer and easier to digest. I'm sure she will pass them fine! My old lab ate my other dogs collar and my mom's gardning glove, and God knows what else- he passed them fine. OH, and my current lab Roxy just ate 15 chocolate munchkins last week- again, fine. DON'T WORRY!

Any updates??
How many bones and how big? Saint managed to pass a 6 inch rib bone that was cooked and he's a 5 month old pup. He swallowed it whole, didn't even naw on the meat on it, just gulped it. We gave him white rice and ground beef mixed together about 50/50 of each. We also gave him a slice of white bread every couple hours. We did this for about 3 or 4 days and then took him into the vet for an xray to see if we could see the bone cause he had diarhea. No signs of a bone anywhere so we got some meds for his loose stool and he's been a crazy pup since. I would just watch him really close and try not to stress. Check his stool to see if he passes it. If he starts vomitting and pacing around and wretching over take him in if you haven't already.

I'm not a vet, but that is what we did. Hope he's ok! Keep us posted

Echo once got a hold of some cooked chicken bones and she was fine, scared me half to death though. We gave her a few slices of bread.

My first dobe snatched a whole cooked chicken leg out of my hand and swallowed it whole without chewing. Just grabbed it and swallowed as I grabbed her mouth and opened it immediately and there was nothing there. Digested it fine. Never saw a sign of the bone again, trust me I looked for it for days.
Did Wonder chew it or swallow whole???
Hope he is okay. They are sly little devils. Wish I had a nickle for every gray hair Parker has given me.

It does sound weird at first but it actually works pretty well, I've used this method a few times myself. The few cotton balls catch and wrap up most of the bone fragments, the bread acts as a soft filler so that hopefully any remaining fragments will travel inside the mass rather than scraping against the intestinal walls and of course the vaseline is a lubricant for the whole mess. Shouldn't cause any additional issues or a blockage unless you feed your dog a half a bag of cotton balls hehe

If you're not comfortable with it though I'm sure your other vet will have a good suggestion, hope everything turns out fine and I'm sure it will. =)
