Then I was out walking him when he did a poo, so being a good dog owner I got my bag out to pick it up, when I noticed it looked really strange. Hate to be the crazy dog lady examining my dogs poo next to the path, but I eventually realised it must be the bully stick.
(Sorry if this is to much information) It had held its shape but had softened a lot (I could tell when I picked it up in the bag). Wilson had no trouble passing it.
It was a while ago, so I can't remember if that was one day or two days after he'd eaten it. But definitely we didn't have any issues. So I wouldn't panic, just keep an eye on him. It's something that is designed to be eaten at least, so could be worse.
It sounds about as long as Wilson's piece was.
I went through heaps of heaps of bully sticks no trouble when Wilson was younger, but haven't given one to him since he swallowed one whole.
Thanks, this makes me feel a little better. Kidogo's only 16 weeks, so I did not expect him to be able to do something like that, especially when he's chewed on the same bully stick for days at a time with little progress. He's pooped twice since then and I squished it (in the bag) but I didn't find anything abnormal about it. He at normally tonight too.
Thanks for all the input and advice. I definitely will be watching him very closely over the next few days.
