Why it’s a bad idea to give your dog a bone

 

1. Broken teeth. This could call for costly veterinary dental treatment.

2. Oral accidental injuries. These can be very weakling and unpleasant and may involve a trip to see your veterinary clinic.

3. Dog bone gets looped close to your dog’s lower jaw. This can be terrifying or unpleasant for your  dog and most likely costly to you, as it usually means a trip to see your vet practitioner.

4. Bone may get jammed in esophagus, the tube that meals travels through to reach the abdomen.
Your dog may choke, seeking to bring the bone back up, and will require to see your veterinarian.

5. Bone gets stuck in windpipe. This may happen if your dog by mistake inhales a smaller enough
piece of bone. This is an urgent situation because your dog will have difficulty breathing. Get your     pet to your vet instantly!

6. Bone gets stuck in abdominal. It went down just okay, but the bone may be very big to pass out of the abdominal and into the digestive system.
Based upon the bone’s size, your dog may require surgical treatment or upper stomach endoscopy, a treatment in which your vet uses a long tube with a built-in digital camera and getting tools to try to take out the stuck bone from the stomach.

7. Bone gets stuck in intestinal tract and causes a congestion. It may be time for surgical treatment.

8. Bowel irregularity due to bone fragments. Your dog may have a tough time transferring the bone fragments because they’re very sharpened and they scrape the inside of the large intestinal tract or rectum as they move along. This leads to severe pain and may require a visit to your veterinary.

9. Serious bleeding from the rectum. This is very unpleasant and can be hazardous. It’s time for a trip to see your veterinary.

10. Peritonitis This awful, difficult-to-treat microbial disease of the stomach is triggered when bone pieces poke holes in your dog’s abdomen or digestive system. Your dog needs an unexpected emergency visit to your vet because peritonitis can kill your dog.

Discuss with your veterinary about other options to providing bones to your dog,” says Stamper. “There are several bone-like products made with elements that are safe for dogs to chew on.
Continually monitor your dog with any chew product, particularly one your dog hasn’t had before,” adds Stamper.
And generally, if your dog ‘just isn’t behaving right,’ call your vet right away!
