  My dog ate a Ham bone, what can I do?
I have a 7 pound Pekingese (4 months old) who somehow got a small piece of ham bone from some beans my dad cooked yesterday (one of the kids must have dropped it on the floor and he found it today). The bone was about 1 inch long x .5 inch wide, I saw him chewing on it but when I tried to get it away from him, he swallowed it.

Does anyone know whether he will be ok, should I take him to the vet tomorrow or just watch for any certain signs that something is wrong. Im just a bit panicked right now, this is the first puppy I've ever had that tries to eat EVERYTHING, and I don't know if this will hurt him or not. Any help is much appreciated.

Your dog should be ok. Chicken bones are the ones you have to watch out for. They can splinter and harm the animal when swallowed. Of course keep an eye on your pet to see if it is displaying any signs of discomfort. Not sure how well the bone may come out the other end. Could be a bit painful. But usually a small ham bone will not harm a dog. Hope your pup turns out to be just fine.

It shouldn't hurt him. Just keep a close eye on his behavior and watch for any signs that hes in pain or choking on something. If this happens take him to the vet but other than that he will soon pass it.
