    Default Lola is constipated and throwing up large sharp bone chips

    Hi All, I need some advice ;(

    Lola (2 year old) has been on raw patties (NVI, Tollden farms -canadian) for about 8 months with an occasional boar bone. She's allergic to chicken and beef but still gets raw patties occasionally to change it up. NEW to her diet, i gave her some raw pork ribs yesterday morning then raw patty for dinner. At 4am, she began vomiting off and on yellow bile and LARGE sharp bone chips This morning she pooped a bit in incriments, and poop is chalky just as I would expect, but the last one was a bit bloody and now with clear liquid. The poo isnt what scares me, its the obscenely large and sharp bone chips that she threw up! Should i take her to the vet because of the possibility of a tear in her digestive system?? She has drank water twice this morning, but does not want food yet understandably.

    Thanks for any advice, she i guess is learning how to eat raw raw, not just mush patties. I hope she's ok. she just looks uncomfortable now.

    i mean these bone chips are LARGE and hard from stomach acid maybe? they look like they've been cooked but were raw on the way in. so sharp, i hope there are no tears.

    I would not be too worried. Her digestive system just isn't use to handling that much bone and she isn't use to chewing them, cause she's been getting her raw in patties. Don't give her any extra bone for awhile and mix some more veggies in her patties to soften her stools.

    thanks for the replies, Lola seems to be better. we got a couple more poops out, and she drank more water and ate a small raw patty and some scrambled eggs. hopefully she keeps it down.

    Hoping Lola will continue to feel better. I'm not a raw feeder but what Riikka said above makes a lot of sense. Please keep us updated on Lola!

    Stig does the same with turkey. Pooped and vomited scary bony bits. He's okay. But we've learned that some bones do that. Especially if they're not used to them and given in larger than usual amounts. Riisi gave great advice. I wold do the same.

    Hope Lola continues to improve, did she keep down her breakfast? I would have been completely freaking out!
