Not been online in quite a while. So Hello everyone!
My two pups have been on raw for about 2 or so years. Doing great on it. But having a bit of an issue with Charlie-Pete so just want some input. They both frequently get raw bone in rabbit, wallaby and chicken. Jess has no trouble...chews through it and thats the end of it. About 50% of the time, Charlie Pete chews through it...and I think he likely chews more fully than Jess, but then about 6-8 hours later will vomit up small pieces of bone that he hasnt been able to digest. I've not worried too much about this. However last night he did this after a dinner of rabbit and really seemed to get something quite stuck. He was in a lot of distress and I was dressed to go to emergency all-night clinic. Then finally managed to get it out...whatever it was. But really struggled with it for about 30 min. Now I'm a bit hesitant to give him bone.
Do some dogs just not digest bone as well as others? Is there anything I can do to help him with this? I like giving him bone-in animal, but not if he wakes up the house at 2:30 am in a lot of distress! Comments?
