In this VETgirl online continuing education blog, we demonstrate how to remove a round bone off a dog's jaw. This occasionally happens while a dog is chewing on a bone (which is why we don't advocate for round bones or real bones!). When in doubt, light sedation (e.g., dexdomitor, butorphanol, benzodiazepines, etc.) should be used. Next, lubricate the muzzle area and then pull the cheeks back. Gently slip the bone up and over the jaw. If this doesn't work, a Gigli wire or orthopedic wire saw can be used to saw off the bone.
