Chi Chi ate a chicken bone!
Chi Chi got into the trash and grabbed a piece of a fried Chinese take-out chicken wing. Sadly, drop it didn't work. I panicked and tried to get it from her but she was too busy crunching it to comply. She ended up swallowing it and immediately gagged and spit up white foam. I called the emergency vet and was advised to feed her a slice of bread (which she wouldn't eat) and to watch for vomiting. She never vomited but she was lethargic and when she would bark it sounded squeaky, so I decided to take her in. Thankfully, X-rays showed that the bones were swallowed and not lodged in her throat. She was given Sucralfate will be eating boiled chicken and rice for 3 days. She seemed better when she woke up this morning. She pooped and eagerly ate the chicken and rice. But she has shown no interest in drinking water and is now just laying around. I'm wondering if I should use the syringe to get water into her?
