If you’ve found that your dog has eaten some of the turkey or its bones, you should consult the vet as soon as possible. However, since most vets are off on Thanksgiving when this is most likely to happen, you should conduct some research before the situation arises.
You might be able to get in touch with an emergency vet, who can visit or walk you through the necessary actions. The first of these would usually be to check for any choking or throat problems.
If you see that there’s no choking or strange behavior, your dog’s probably fine for now. Any gagging, retching, or choking, however, is a warning sign. The same goes for if the dog’s drinking an unusual amount of water, pacing, licking its lips, or isn’t able to stay in one place comfortably.
Feed the dog soft foods for the next few days, like cooked rice or bread. This would help provide a cushion for the bones as they’re being digested. Also be sure to monitor your dog for any telltale signs, especially with regard to their stools. Until the bones pass, it’s recommended to keep your dog as calm as possible.
