I once assisted an extensive abdominal surgery on a person who was eating chicken (including the bones) and one of those shards perforated his bowel. I often seen people in my practice who have pieces of bone (fish or chicken) caught in their throats. I never give chicken bones to any of my pets since I don't want to risk the same problems, so when you eat a chicken bone(s) you take a chance.
