Dog ate pork rib bone....should I be concerned?

Dumb fucker. Now I'm wondering if I should take him to work with me tomorrow to keep an eye on him.


Can he digest it or should I be concerned that there's an expensive vet bill in my near future?


Edit: It was a baby back rib bone....he swallowed the damn thing whole.

Depends on sizes (the dog and the bone). If he can pass it, he'll likely be fine, but the chances of him actually digesting it are slim. Swallowing it whole, there's a good chance he can pass it, but the "in" is bigger than the "out" on most dogs.

I don't worry about giving him big bones that he can gnaw on, but swallowing a whole bone has me worried.

I was eating ribs and had an extra....I was letting him chew the meat off the bone while I held it....of course he got it slimey enough to make it slip out of my hand and managed to swallow it in less than a second.

He's a 65 lb lab/chow/rott mix.

I'll keep an eye on him and watch for any signs of discomfort.

Be ok, mine did the same thing a few months ago. I gave it to her and I look back over and it was gone. Took her to the vet, he said feed her soft food and something like benefiber, something with a lot of fiber in it. It will help coat it and pass easier.

He was really excited about the prospect of pork!

I'm currently stuck in a hotel, traveling for work and the guilt of leaving him alone all day got the better of me so I let him chew on a bone. The first one was fine. He chewed the meat off and let it go. The second one, he got it all slobbery and swallowed the whole damn thing, meat, bone and all!!

rib bones tend to splinter. If one does it can get caught in your dogs throat requiring you to remove it. If he swallowed a bone whole it will probably pass whole. THAT!! will be interested. And time consuming.

one of my dogs ate a jalapeno that I dropped. It was wrapped in bacon and had a toothpick in it. Swallowed it whole. I called of my vet buddies and he said to not worry about it... 35 pound ACD...

My 100 lb Lab ate two whole pig feet one night while I was cooking. Never fazed him.

Shit, our lab eats pork ribs all the time. After 5 or 6 hours in the smoker, they're pretty much mush anyway.

I have fed them to my labs several times, they chew them up though. I wouldn't worry about anything other than the lovely new smell in the room about an hour after he ate them.

Had a dog eat a raw Chicken thigh whole once. No bite just in the mouth and down the throat. Suffered no ill effects. If the bone was raw I would not worry about it.

It will likely be fine.
Cooked bones are a little hard on them, but if it went in the front it should come out the back.

My dogs find cooked bones people throw out fairly regularly. One year my neighbor through a whole cooked turkey carcass over the hill. I let the beagles out and when I found them they had eaten most of it bones and all.

I have been amazed at some of things I have seen dogs swallow whole and never have a problem.

Well think off what was "scrubbed" out as those things made their way out.

Yeah...it was the swallowing the thing whole that freaked me out. Chewing it, there's the chance of splinters but I never let him do that. This time he was supposed to just chew the meat off!

Shoulda seen me jab my hand down his throat to try to get it back when he got it outta my hand! Swallowed that fucker fast....new knew better.

To answer the question in your title, yes, you should be concerned.
Take the necessary steps to make sure your dog cannot gain access to your BACON supply!

I wouldn't be worried unless he shits out a full grown female pig. If he does, then whoever sold him to you was dyslexic.

My neighbor had a beagle that you better get to the rabbit before he did.
He ate a rabbit like an anaconda, head first and whole. I have had many tug-o-wars with Farmer only to get from the shoulders back. As he broke from the tug-o-war you would see him swallow hard and go after the rest you were holding.

A friend shot a rabbit and I ran to get it before farmer. I had some young dogs and I was showing them saying "dead rabbit, dead rabbit". I saw Farmer coming at a dead run. I raised the rabbit up to about shoulder height as he came flying through the air at shoulder height. He grabbed the rabbit and I jerked it away. He hit the ground, made an face as you could hear the [Gulp] and then jumped for it again. He had snatched the front leg and shoulder right of the rabbit when he grabbed it and swallowed it whole.

I am still amazed at all the rabbit heads he ate, relatively whole from the rabbits that we killed and he beat us to them.

I've seen my dogs eat just about everything and rarely have problems. Socks, panties, and balls of foil do cause them problems. I had a bird dog that ate every sock and pair of panties it found. When it passed them, I would have to go step on them and kick her in the ass to pull them out.

My dog, 35 lb Border Collie/ Australian ate about 3lbs of Corned Beef roast once. He came out to the living room and sat under the coffee table. I look down and he's licking his chops. I look at the wife and say, "does that dog stink like corned beef or what?" It hit me immediatly and I stand up to look back in the kitchen and the whole damn thing was gone. We had potatoes and cabbage smothered in mustard that night.
