Dog vomits after eating turkey neck
Chester has eaten raw turkey necks on three occasions now. He chews them quite carefully. The first time, I gave him half a neck (the top half). He loved it and had absolutely no issues. No vomiting, no gastric distress.
The second time I also gave him half a neck, although it was the bottom half so the bones were bigger. He vomited once that night, a bit of yellow bile with some type of plastic wrapper in it. I wasn't sure if the turkey neck was entirely responsible for this because of 1) the plastic and 2) I didn't see any bone fragments in the vomit.
The third time (yesterday) I gave him an entire neck. Early this morning he threw up 4 or 5 times. Yellow bile with several small (less than peanut-sized) pieces of bone.
Did I progress to an entire neck too quickly? Could it be that the thicker bones at the base of the neck are causing issues?
Any thoughts and advice appreciated!
