I always knew dogs shouldn't have chicken bones. But I didn't know how bad pork bones could be.
My poor Toby had a really bad day.
We had pork chops for dinner on Friday, and several of my well meaning children shared their bones with the dogs.
Sammy came out of it ok.
But poor Toby didn't.
I won't go into details, but I will say that I don't think I have ever seen a living thing have such a hard, painful, messy time trying to poop. And I mean, it was really, really bad.
I finally had to take him to the vet. After a series of medical treatments, (again, I won't go into details), and so far about $500, the vet still wants to keep him until... well, until he's better.
The bone fragments from the pork chops are basically cutting up his insides.
So, the point of this post, regardless of how strange and classless is seems, especially after yesterday's post, besides being somewhat therapeutic for me, is to warn you not to give pork bones to dogs.
