The meat bit won't be a problem at all and I'd have thought (but could be wrong) that the meat will protect Skittle until it gets to her stomach where it should start breaking down. It's amazing what canine digestive systems will do to bones :wink:
Some one once posted about a similar thing and was told that nowadays, being as Chickens are fed so many hormones and stuff to make them grow quickly, their bones are very fragile anyway, and so digest much quicker than in 'the olden days'. I don't know how true it is, but I can see how it could well be.
Oh nawty Skittle! All fingers, toes and paws crossed over here for a 'smooth' passing! 8O I'd agree with the fact that as she swallowed it whole, its far less likely to splinter i'd have thought, than if she had chomped on it first! Let us know when it appears!!!! x
:lol: :lol: :lol: If she's still eating, I can't see there's a problem. It'll be churning away in her stomach by now. I think most problems (and again, I could be wrong) are from bones splintering before they get to the stomach.
No there is no way to stop her counter-surfing!! I had put d/stick at back of worktop to put it out with the rest of my badger food AND put things infront of it!! She has learnt to stretch a front leg and use her claws to drag stuff forward 8O To think I thought she was dim :lol: :lol: :lol:
:lol: Yorkie is the same! His favourite trick was to pull the chopping board forward and give it a good clean :roll:
He has been banned now. I don't allow him in the kitchen unless its his dinnertime, or he sits on the mat at the far end when I'm in there and doesn't move. Sadly we live with OH's parents and they don't keep this up with him so he's not adverse to trying his luck when they're about :roll:
