My cat got a hold of a wishbone I had been drying out (where I thought she wouldn’t get it) and swallowed I presume about an inch long piece. What are the chances she will experience ill effects from this? I don’t want it slicing her insides open!!!
There is a chance that t might just pass right on through with no problems (fingers crossed for this). Bone might be small enough.
If your cat does start to vomit or stops eating I would take her to the vet cause they might have to surgically remove it cause it might be stuck and like you said you dont want it to tear up her insides.
She may pass it, but she may not.
The best thing to do would be to take the cat to the Vet and have an x-ray to make sure the bone isn’t stuck somewhere in her intestines , throat or stomach.
If everything checks out then at least you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that she’ll be fine and if by some chance in is stuck somewhere your Vet will be able to remove it before it causes any further damage.
Good luck, I hope kitty is okay.
It’s not that big of a deal. My cat swallows chicken wing bones all the time. Nothing happens to him and it passes by quickly. Although, if you are worried then take him/her to the vet. He/She can get x-rays to figure out if the bone is in a dangerous place. Then, talk to your veterinarian to figure out what the best approach would be to help your cat “relieve” his or her self.
There’s a high chance that she’ll be just fine.I know that we are advised not to give our pets chicken bones but don’t panic.Left to their own devices cats eat all sorts of rubbish,their digestive systems can cope with almost any thing.Lets face it,before we domesticated them they didn’t walk around avoiding poultry in case they choked.
There is not a problem,about Cat swallowed piece of wishbone Yahoo searching link
Cats digestive systems are designed to consume bones.
I’m sure she chewed the bone more than you realized.
If your concerned call her Vet and inquire about the situation.
Take her to the vet and they can do an x-ray to see where the bone is and if its in a dangerous. They could give her something to help it pass or they may have to do surgery.
If you don’t notice the cat choking, it is probably ok. Cats do eat bones of prey.
