    Default He swallowed a Buffalo Chicken wing..

    My husband was eating chicken wings for dinner. He dropped one, and Blue got it to it before either of us (amazing how fast they move for food).
    I tried getting it out of his mouth, but he decided to swallow the thing whole before I could.

    Should I be worried? He's not choking or anything. Is he gonna poop it out? Can it cause obstruction? I have no idea what to do..

    Hi, my Dozer swallowed a Chinese food sweet and sour spare rib bone last year, and he was fine, he did eventually
    pass it. Regular chicken bones can be a problem because they can splinter, but because it was a buffalo chicken wing, they are much, smaller and the bones are thinner or finer than regular chicken bones, so I think he will be okay and pass it. Also dogs have a different stomach acid than we do, which pretty much dissolves everything they eat, and they are able to digest things better than us, and things that we wouldn't be able to digest. I know you'll worry as we all do when our babies swallow stuff, they are so quick, and so food oriented. I would just keep an eye on him for now, and watch for any symptoms of obstruction like vomiting, diarrhea, or drooling. I honestly think he will be fine though, as it wasn't a big bone. How long ago did he swallow it? I've read on here that some people have given their dogs some hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting, but I have no experience with this, and do t know how much you would give, also I think it has to be given right away or soon after swallowing something, for it to work. Maybe someone on here has experience with this and will come along and be able to offer some advice. I hope Blue is okay, and is able to digest and pass the bone. Please keep us posted on how he's doing. Sending love, hugs, and prayers to you and Blue that everything is okay.

    Thanks ladies. Blue seems to have the worst luck, so I'm just nervous.

    My boxer Roxie has eaten chicken bones, and Bella swallowed a LIVE baby bird... God Help ME!!! In both cases I just watched them for any vomiting or pooping issues... of course both were fine. I did call the vets, but they said unless there was an issue that to just keep an eye on them. Bella actually vomited the bird bones almost 2 weeks later... I'm sure that Blue will be fine... it happens!!!

    He'll be fine! Was it a hot wing? It may burn a little coming out..at least that's what happens when I eat them.

    They sure are fast when food is dropped. Hope he passes it without issue

    @Chumley yes, it was a hot wing.. lol

    Spoke with my vet. She said to watch him. If he starts to vomit, take him in for an x-ray.

    Pretty much what you guys said.

    So much for going into the office tomorrow. So grateful I have the option of working from home.

    I'd call the vet just to be safe and probably just keep an eye on him closely over the next several days and check all his poops. I would hope the bone doesn't turn sideways (not sure if that would happen but I would be concerned cause I'm a worry wort that way). Can't blame him for wanting a chicken wing though.
