Posted this in the RAW forum with no response. Thought I'd post it here and see if anyone had any comments. Usually Dana hops on these but I know Chili just had her pups a couple days ago:
Last night Fletch grabbed an uncooked chicken drumstick and swallowed it without chewing. I tried to grab it but he had it swallowed before I could get to it. He gets fed RAW at night so it's not that he isn't used to raw meat. He seemed fine last night, he threw up a little in the middle of the night (Not the bone and not completely unheard of. He's thrown up in the night maybe once every two months since i've had him) and was ok this morning and today.
I just want to check and see if I had any reason to be concerned in terms of digestion? I believe that is a weight bearing bone and the fact that it wasn't chewed at all concerns me.
Like any Lab that swallows something they shouldn't, and the list is endless, I would observe carefully but is that bone doesn't show up out of either end by tomorrow I would head to your Vet for an Xray to see where it might be.
thanks for posting that link Tia..... I was wondering if the bones got digested or not.... I remember when Connie asked that, because one of her dogs grabbed a whole bone of some sort and she was worried about a blockage. That was a very informative discussion.
