Chicken bones!!

My 5 month old puppy, Oakley, ate some chicken bones tonight. We had chicken for dinner and I wrapped up the scraps and bones in aluminum foil before I put them in the trash. I put the lid on the trash. A little while later, I could hear him chewing on a bone! My husband quickly ran to him. The scraps, and the bones, were gone (he left behind the aluminum foil). We immediately called the emergency vet, who said there's nothing that can be done....just monitor for lethargy, nausea, vomiting, etc. I am so upset!!!! I wasn't 20 feet away from him.....Its amazing to me how quickly, easily and quietly he got into the trash!! I searched to see if others have gone through anything similar and noticed that white bread is recommended, so I did give him some. Anything else I can do??

I am sorry, it is good you talk to a vet and you know what to monitor. No advice, just calm down, everything will be ok.

Give him some white bread to help protect the stomach from the sharp bones. Make sure to check his stools to see if the bones pass.

my pup did the same, ate the whole thing very quickly and quietly! compared to when he eats his actual food! He was fine, he was given dry bread and we just kept an eye on him, we just extra careful now when throwing food away or leaving items in the kitchen hope he is ok
