One other caution--my dogs eat sticks--crazy border collies, and I've had at least a half dozen occasions where a small piece of a stick has gotten wedged across the roof of their mouths.
If your dog seems ever to be drooling, tentative about eating, or the tell-tale one, pawing at their mouths, then take a look and feel up there. One of ours had to be put under to get the really small one that had embedded in his mouth right behind his teeth. He was so stoic that we never even knew it.
