    I stupidly let my evil hound feast on abandoned (raw) bones at my cousin's place yesterday - and lo - we had a chunder event this morning - on my bed - great.

    Why is dog drooling, she never drools - ARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!

    Most of it came up outside fortunately but I still had to wash everything.

    And there were spikey bits of bone - about the size of 2x twenty cent pieces joined at right angles. And a few more bits between the size of five and 20 cent pieces with spikey corners. I don't understand her filter system - this stuff upchucked but the dinner I fed her long after she ate the bones - stayed down.

    Next time I visit there I will be taking a bin with a dog proof lid or something I can hang out of dog reach and every bone she retrieves I will trade for a treat and then stash in the bin for the other dogs to have back after we go.

    The pic I have attached was of him when he first started to realize he'd grown too big to cool off in the water dish(thank goodnes as the TM's hate dirty water, lol) so he now uses the outside tough that is meant for such use.

    because she still feels sick, like with car sickness they drool.

[COLOR="teal"]The bones have come up & not the rest as these are the bits she can not digest & even good bone eaters will occasionly bring up bits of bone that just wont break down. So really it's a sign her gut is working well & not letting the fragment travel travel further though & cause a blockage.[COLOR="teal"]

    Yes if she is still drooling & 1 up chuck has not made her feel better maybe bones are not for her. Dogs bringing things up is not always a terrible thing though & can be a sign that everything is in working order.

    Hi Crazydog

    I can see your "tags" ie Colour is teal etc - there is a start tag and an end tag and they look slightly different ie there is usually a forward slash after the open square bracket on the "end" tag. And on your set, the forward slash has fallen off the "end" tag.

    So anyway - what I was trying to say (and obviously wasn't as clear as I could be), was that drool was my early warning - and I didn't work that out until it was too late. ARRGH.

    She was fine after she finished upchucking - no more drool and her stools look ok. But I still don't like that bones do that to her and I might not be home the next time the fragments come back to haunt us.

    OK, my other half just went to the pet store for some chicken necks...

    Yes, they had them, but the lady there was emphatic about not giving them to puppies before 14 weeks of age. I cannot imagine what age has to do with it - size, yes, but age?

    She highly recommended lamb necks instead. Your thoughts?

    Well my thoughts are lamb necks may be safer as a choking hazard but the raw chicken bones are easier digested than lamb or beef bones. That said maybe the shop keeper is thinking the pup will only chew on the lamb neck yet eat the chicken necks or wings bones & all but I have seen young dogs get through whole lamb necks so I prefer chicken more untill bellies are a little older. But really my dogs get nearly any bones by 4mths & pick & choise what suit them theirselves.
    Go with what you feel happiest with & really any bone eating has it's hazzards I just find the good out ways the bad.
    But not all dogs are good bone eaters just like Hycinth dog some just do not digest them well.

    Yes your dog may just not be a bone dog.
