Q: Has anyone had problems with dog vomiting after eatingt Jumbone?

November 17, 2009 | By Luvthatpup | 3 answers | Expired: 1702 days ago

I recently purchased Pedigree Jumbones (3 pack) for my 7 month old puppy. He ate two over two days and seemed to enjoy them. On the third day he began to vomit. After 4-5 episodes he threw up what looked like rocks. After careful inspection I found that the "rocks" were actually the center of the Jumbone, undigested. On the fourth day, he also vomited more "rocks". I am thankful it does not appear to be a blockage yet, but am very concerned for others as the bone is advertised to be nutritious and digestible, an alternative to rawhide. We are very careful with all treats and toys, and always supervise him when he has them. We have tried to avoid rawhide and other undigestible treats. We will definitely NOT purchase these again.

though i have no experience w/jumbones, one thing jumps to my attention and that is the brand name "pedigree". commercial dog foods tote on having nutritious foods and treats, when in reality there's very little that's nutritional about them. basically, they have better marketing ploys than they do food. it can be hard to determine what's good and what's not when these brands lie right on their labels. i think your dog proved that jumbones are not digestible.

Don't get anything like that for your dog, no nylabone, rawhide, greenies any of those chewy things to keep a dog occupied, they don't digest them properly & can cause a blockage or they can choke to death, get a kong or a toy that you can put food or treats in and will occupy your pet by them trying to get the food out.

I had posted a journal just last night about one of our local t.v. channels having a segment on the fact that there are NO safety standards for dog toys that contain lead and pose choking hazards. It's all up to us until things change. There's TOO many things being sold to us labeled as healthy that do pose choking hazards. Just to be on the safe side please give your vet a call and let him/her what's been happening.
