A concerning message was recently posted by a Facebook user on the group “The Yellow Labrador Retriever Club”.
The post featured photos of a Pitbull at the vet after his owners have been feeding him bones for a long time. The x-ray showed that he had interstitial obstruction, and was in terrible pain.
Here’s what the post said:
“STOP FEEDING BONES TO YOUR DOGS !!
A must read!!!!
Bones can cause serious complications and DEATH
During an emergence surgery early this morning at The Society for Animals in Distress almost a kilogram of bones had to be removed from the stomach and intestine a 2 year Pitbull. This very loved pet is left fighting for his life through a simple act of ignorance.
Bones can cause intestinal obstructions, choke, puncture holes through the intestines, fracture teeth and a multitude of other problems – it’s just not worth it!!”
