    Yorkie dog bleeding from bum, chicken bones , what to do.

    Mixed Yorkshire terrier
    Age - 8 years?

    Hello all , I'm always very careful to remove any bones when i give my dog chicken but someone went & feed my dog the chicken with bones,it wasn't their fault,they were not know but they certainly know now.

    Anyway yesterday my dog kept trying to go to the toilet & he was crying & in so much pain & blood has been coming out of his bum,the blood only comes out when he trys to go to the toilet, i noticed small bits of bone in the blood.

    I phoned the vet yesterday & the person on the phone advised me to give him a lite diet like scramble eggs. Should i do this? I thought it would best to just keep him on water(ice cubes) so thats all i have been giving him?

    Anyway during the night things were not as bad, he is still trying to go to the toilet & it is still bleeding but it is not as bad & he doesn't seem to be in as much pain, his personality seems a little better as well today.

    What would you kind people advise, should i just be sitting this out or does my dog need the vet. Im really confused what to do, ill be taking him straight to the vet if things get bad again but for now what should i be doing? Should i take him to the vet anyway.

    thanks for reading , much appreciated.

    He definitely needs to see a vet, it sounds like the bone is causing the bleeding, he could have cuts in his intestines which isn't good, he could also have a blockage. Scrambled eggs? I'd find another vet.

    Yea that what i was thinking mate, i didnt actually make the call but i was listening & got the impression that this happens all the time & it will sort itself out, yea silly me but there nothing i could do late last night anyway. just checked him there & he is walking about allot more which is great.

    He has always been a nervous we dog, i got him from a a little old lady who had lots of animals,he was underfeed & abused, he was ready for death until i saved him. What im getting at is when he gets in a fight or is sick he gets really nervous again & its difficult to help him or he snaps,he has never bitten anyone but he does seem scary for a we dog. The vet wound be able to deal with a dog like this yea??? i suppose allot of dogs are snappy when in pain

    again thanks for reading

    Hey BD, yeah I would take him to the vet. And yes vets are able to handle aggression in dogs, but it is important to let the vet KNOW that your dog is fearful and likely to snap or bite and that they should likely muzzle him if necessary.

    I wonder about an assistant or receptionist who would recommend a dietary change to deal with possible chicken bone ingestion. They are NOT vets. I worked at a vet for ten years at the front desk, we could recommend this sort of thing for diarrhea etc but if there was ANY chance of more serious issues (and a chicken ingestion IS serious) than the person was told to bring the dog in. I would mention this to the vet as well, in case he/she doesn't know that this sort of info is being given over the phone. This is bad care.

    Good luck, I hope he's okay.

    Thanks Cracker & angel_baby , sorry for the delay. Got him to the vet & he getting better now. The vet was great, they put him to sleep & took some xrays & then were able to remove some bones from his back side. There were still some pieces they couldn't remove so they advised feeding some slimy foods for a while like pasta & stuff to help pass the rest of the bone out,he is on some tablets as well. I couldnt getting him eating but then i tried him with super noddles & he loved them, he is going to the toilet as normal now & there isnt even a trace of blood .He running about going mad again,lol. He a tough we dog.

    cheers all


    LET THIS BE A LESSON TO PEOPLE TO KEEP COOKED CHICKEN BONES WELL AWAY FROM DOGS,
