    Hi there,
    I noticed last night that after my dog had finished her meal, part of a bone (lamb meat bone) was stuck around her teeth. I’ve tried to pull it out but it is so tightly wedged that it wont move! It didn’t appear to hurt her when i pulled at it, but i’ve noticed that she isn’t chewing her usual way and is sleeping with her mouth open and her tongue out (also unusual). It has also led to excessive drooling. The bone is probably about 2-3cm long.
    Just wondering if anyone had any advice on what i should do…

    Thanks,
    Amelia

    By this point I am sure that you have already had your vet manually remove the bone (assuming that neither you nor your dog was able to remove it yourselves). There really is no other way.
