    Any vets onboard?

    My dog, Stella the killer beagle, killed and ate a rabbit on Friday. Since then she's had trouble keeping food down. She's still happy and playful so I don't think she's feeling that bad overall. My wife read something about rabbit bones causing obstructions. Should we give it a few more days or should I take her in right away?

    How much do you love your dog? I would take her in asap. If there is an obstruction, you better not wait.

    I believe rabbit bones, like chicken and pork bones, can splinter and perforate internal organs. Also, there's a good chance she'll get worms from the rabbit. If she were mine, I'd get her looked at.
