    Default Swallowed a bone

    I just dropped one of Dooley's deer antlers and a piece about an inch broke off (I grabbed it from him when I saw it was going to break off) and he's swallowed the piece when it hit the floor. It was maybe an inch long and round. Will he pass this or digest it? Or do I need to get to the vet in the morning?

    Several dogs have eaten stuff lately, and I recall a couple being told to feed the dog bread, so it will pass easier. If it is not sharp, it should pass but could take awhile. Keep on eye out and check poop. If he starts vomiting, drooling and drinking excessively-then he needs to get to the vet pretty quick.. It could take a week or more to pass. Hope he will poop it out.
    You probably should call the vet in the morning, and see what he thinks.

    I have no idea if he could digest that… I will tag some members to see what they advice. I would just keep an eye on him, and make sure he's eating & pooping regularly.

    Can I give him something to make him vomit? Or is it better to wait this out and see what happens.

    I would NOT recommend that… bullies can aspirate, that is why it's best to only have a vet do that. I would try feeding him some bread and see if he can poop it out…

    Don't worry… my Bella swallowed a live baby bird, and held on to that thing for a week. I about lost it, but she was absolutely fine… then she puked it up!!! These dogs I swear will swallow anything that's NOT nailed down… LOL

    I would just watch her for awhile to make sure it doesn't get stuck. Hopefully she will pass it soon.

    Oh I know it. I usually watch him pretty well but this just happened so quick and he grabbed it and took off running.

    He now has had two slices of bread.

    Great advice above, luckily you saw him get it so you can monitor his behavior. He may throw it up on his own, but then again he will orobably eat it again if you are not around. Silly bullies!!! My Yuna swallowed something blue and donut shaped, and she never eats anything. Two weeks of sickness and clear X-rays they finally cut her open to find it. We still have no clue what it is or where it came from?!
