Ok, we all know this is bad. The bones splinter. I dont know why this remedy works, but just in case this happens to you, my grandma (who was in dogs all her life- also won Westminster) recommends soaking bread in vegetable oil and then feeding it to the dog as soon as possible after they eat the bones. I would guess it cushins the bones and lubricates the system. That way it passes without causing damage. Of course, keep an eye on your dog. I also keep my dog quiet for the next 24-48 hours so hopefully the bones don't get stabbed into her intestines. And yes, my dumb dog ate the carcass this morning when I was outside for 5 minutes. So she got a "yummy" breakfast that she almost didn't eat (bread and oil is not her favorite!).
