    This just happened to my friend's dog last night. She rushed her to the emergency vet. Her dog had to be sedated while two vets tried to break the marrow bone to get it off her jaw. Luckily no teeth were damaged. She was crying and now sound asleep at home. Please be careful :

    This happened to Bamm a few years ago. It scared the hell out of me. Luckily I was able to get it off without having to rush him to the vet, but it wasn't easy.

    This almost happened to our dog also. Fortunately, we got the bones out right.

    I had to pull one off Fozzie's lower jaw when he was 6 months old. :( Very scary!!! He was freaking out. I never feed those after that incident.

    Happened to Violet, she had to be rushed to the vet and put under anesthesia to get it sawn off of her jaw. Poor thing was in a panic because she couldn't get it off of her lower jaw but she kept trying. My dad and brother had to hold her so she wouldn't hurt herself.
