Question Eating bones

My adult 210 lb. Mastiff ate a large cooked prepackaged ham bone completely now I'm worried. Can dogs digest ham bones and can a dog the size of mine likely pass on what isn't digested? Thanks.

If it was raw I'd say he'd probably just be a bit constipated and maybe vomit up some of the bone he can't digest in a day. But cooked bones are different, they can splinter, it's not just chicken bones but all cooked bones. You could always call up your vet and see what they suggest.
