    So somebody got into the trash and ate several pieces of left over fried chicken, bones and all. Watching her like a hawk. She will be lucky if all she gets is an upset stomach... [​IMG]

    My cat does this too. She changes from a slug to a ninja when she knows there is chicken in the trash. [​IMG]

    The chance of your dog being injured is quite small. [​IMG] Watch but try not to worry yourself too much.

    You can also feed her some bread slices. The danger is that a splinter of the bone could pierce her stomach or intestines. The bread will kind of ball up, hopefully around the bone.

    So far so good. I did give them bread, cause I wasnt 100% sure who ate it, they both looked guilty. No upset stomach, watching for blood. They both seem as normal as these 2 could be. Bad dogs...

    My dogs have been eating fried chicken bones all of their life.

    I hope they'll be okay and I'm pretty sure they will be, like A.T. Hagan said. [​IMG] Jax and Kane get chicken bones all the time, but only raw ones.

    Ugh, my dog did that the other day and then had the runs all over the basement. [​IMG]: Thankfully he's never had a stomach issue though he gets into things he shouldn't eat way too often! Hope your doggie is okay.
