Should I be worried? It was there one second, gone the next (she wasn't left alone with it, was chewing it on the floor at my feet). We thought she may have hidden it but we can't find it anywhere. It was smallish, maybe 4 inches long. Dog is only 7 months old and has only been here for a couple of days!! It says they are "highly digestible" but I doubt that applies to a whole one

My dog can inhale food. Sometimes for fun he swallows stuff in large chunks then brings it back up to chew it a bit more hmm. I therefore don't worry unless he was choking or struggling to eat other food.

I would just keep an eye on her and make sure other food and drink goes down and through ok.

My dog eats those in 2 bites... is she a very small dog?

She's about the size of a staffie, she seems ok at the moment so will have to keep a close eye I guess!

She's probably just eaten it, there's not as much chewing on them as you'd think.

My dogs would demolish a rice bone in two minutes so I wouldn’t worry tbh. They aren’t very hard to chew.

Fair enough, she really is absolutely fine so I think I was panicking about nothing, to be fair our other dog isn't interested in chews at all!
