    I just got home to find the contents of the garbage, including a 3/4 eaten turkey carcass, strewn all over the kitchen floor. My beagle mix got into and had dinner... She ate a good portion of the turkey leftovers bones and all. She seems fine, will it hurt her? I can't believe it, she's never done that before.

    on the bright side at least it wasn't a bean bag that the dog got into, i've come home to that before. little polystyrene balls all through the house static clinging to everything they touched.

    not sure about the bones sorry, pretty sure i've heard they can be a problem but if it makes you feel better whenever any dogs i've had have gotten into something similar when they've not meant to they've always been fine.

    If the bones were cooked it shouldn't hurt the dog at all, but being a garbage gut it may get the runs. [​IMG]

    Sorry for the mess. My border collie/aussie mix was a trash digger her whole 12 years, I could never break her of it. One day I walked in the house with a friend to find the dog had ripped apart a dirty diaper all over my living room. [​IMG] Hope your dog doesn't suffer for her indiscretion.

    Keep an eye on her,make sure she has a normal bm and not throwing up. And any bones cooked are not good for dogs .Can lodge in stomach and create blockage.If throwing up and goes off food and water call vet asap.Hope all goes will and she just passes it through,but may have loose stool so beware.

    Quote:This is a perpetual misconception. Cooked bones are the WORST!! They can splinter internally - raw bones are actually softer and more palatable.

    my dog, who is a very tiny chihuahua got into my sons trash can of which he stupidly put a box of KFC chicken bones, from where he & his friends had a "pig out" any way she come walking through the house looking like a furry ballon, so im like, what in the world did you get into? so i went looking, when i saw what she had got, i was so mad! i couldnt believe he had did that(put those bones in his trash can), i just knew my little dog was gonna die! i called my vet and told him what had happened, he told me not to worry, & give her some vegtable oil to help her eliminate them it worked! i still have my lil girl and she is 17 years old!

    "if the bones were cooked they won't harm the dog"

    That is incorrect. Cooked poultry bones are the most dangerous to dogs. Cooking makes them more brittle.

    I think all you really can do is keep an eye on her. Bones or pieces of bone can block or puncture the intestines.

    Not natural? Dogs in the wild ate cooked poultry bones? Or any bones? Not so much. They cracked them and ate out the marrow, or ate them after the bones had weathered and deteriorated. Or if not, some of them died. Not every dog that eats a bone will die, some will. I hope your dog is fine.

    It's correct that cooked bones, esp. poultry, are the most dangerous. On the other hand, I've had something like this happen to me a few times, and the dog did just fine. A lot of people don't know not to give cooked poultry bones; some will tell you they've been doing it for years without harm. So cross your fingers and hope she will be fine. If she goes off feed or acts sick or her belly swells, it's vet time for sure.

    Good luck.
