Today's RMB was a knuckle bone and she's very uncomfortable now. She can't get comfy and she's thrown up once. I'm keeping a close eye on her and if she doesn't get better I'll call the vet. I guess I'm done with RMB - 3x in a row for this is a sign to me that something just doesn't sit well with her. Poor pupper.

I usually call my vet's office if I'm not sure. They're pretty good about asking for symptoms and then telling me to come right in, or wait until X happens.
This site lists some signs of when it's time to call the vet after a dog eats a bone and then seems miserable:
(I'm not recommending this guy's cotton ball remedy--I have no idea if that's a good idea. I have used the pumpkin approach to moving stuff through. When my Tiva got a dangerous blockage, she was vomiting blood. But the vet listed some other signs as well.)
