Urgent !!! How bad can this really be? (chicken bone incident)

Okay so while i was at work today jake got into the trash and ate a chicken bone or two. how bad can this really be? he seems his usual self.

Should I rush him to the E-vet or just wait it out?

I mean i honestly feel he's eatten worst things and survived.

Is this one of those monitor as you go or let's just rush kinda situations? since his normal vet is now closed?

I wouldn't worry to much. Just monitor him for any signs of sickness or anything, but he should be perfectly fine. My two have ended up eating cooked bones before too with no ill effects.

One time my roomie's malamute got into the bin and ate a whole chicken caracss. All I found was a trail of grease, leading to an empty bag, ending with a very satisfied dog in the backyard. Understandably, I was hysterical. shock But they all popped out the other end just fine and dandy. So Mister Beagle should be okay. hug

too old to eat- any more KD
