Dogs ate bone meal

Hi there,
My dogs unfortunately got into a box of bone meal the other day. Since this misadventure both have been sneezing alot. Should I be concerned? Their dispositions are great.

Maybe the dust got up their noses? I would talk to a vet about it, particularly if you are the least bit worried. Could be your intuition.
How much did they eat? and how are their stools?

I'd check with your vet too as well as keep a close eye on them for the next few days. Small amounts of bone meal can cause upset stomachs but I've heard that larger amounts can actually cause a blockage in their bowels.
