    The dog on the avitar yesterday decided to eat what was left of a cooked chicken including the carcass bones and all( no she stole it from the bin) so after an afternoon at the vets and a look on the xray the vet says it should pass through starve her for 24 hrs as she is FULL.so I am now reduced to not only picking up as normal but looking for bones yuk.fingers crossed:Doh::Eeek:

    Hey worry all you want but that will not make a jot of difference.

    You would be amazed at what dogs guts can cope with, its just the odd sharp bone in chicken that may cause a problem but very unlikely.

    I do not really agree with the starvation as I think it is better with summat to keep it moving through the gut.

    But either way I am betting that there will not be a problem----- so STOP WORRYING

    Cheers Alan

    :ROFLMAO:

    My old Lab did exactly the same! Though I think the cat had something to do with it...she had this 'It wasn't me' look in her eye!

    I suspect she knocked it off the side as it cooled, andtoby finsihed it off - but anyway, walked into the kitchen after being in the garden and found him standing there with the carcass on his nose...trying his best to look innocent!

    Should be ok, just regular walks till it passes through. You would be amased what these dogs stomachs get away with eating.

    Oh lord, who would think such an innocent looking dog would have it in him?:ROFLMAO:
    My friend's dog used to eat her tights and they used to appear again with no probs.
    Don't worry he will be all right but might give chicke a miss for a bit!
