Question already eaten a bone

About a week ago we gave Primo a veal bone from our dinner plates. I did not know that bones are not good for him until reading pets.ca. I grew up with 3 dogs and my dad always gave bones to the dogs. So I thought it was okay. Primo has been fine, very playful and happy until yesterday.
He tore apart a stuffed squeaky toy we got him. I am afraid he might have eaten some of the stuffing from the toy or that the bones are starting to cause trouble. He is hardly eating or drinking, certainly not as much as usual. His stool is not normal either. It is very runny and partly brown but mostly black.
Is this normal in 3 year old, not yet fixed, male dalmation dogs.

please advise.

Hi,

Anytime a dog is not eating or drinking...it's not normal.

if his stool has a funny colour it's not normal.

These things are serious and if i were you i'd bring him in to a vet asap.

good luck

Howie

Thumbs up

Dear Howie:

Thank you for your advice.
He will not be eatting anymore bones.
Primo has seen the vet and is slowly recovering from bladder crystals.
He is on a pure vegetarian diet. MED CAL
Primo likes steamed carrots.
I am going to be making him some homemade vegetarian biscuits as soon as I can find a recipe.

Regards,

Hi there, I found some vegetarian recipes off thepoop.com.

They're not all biscuits, but they're still really neat.
I made sure none of them had actual meat in them, but there are some that call for chicken or beef broth/stock/bouillon, which I'm guessing probably doesn't have actual meat in it, right?.....lol

Hope your pup likes 'em!

There's quite a few..............
The message will be way too long, so I'll post them as 3 messages.
