Alright. What I'd recommend is getting Scottie to your vet as they can do a physical exam on him. Bring along the object that he chewed on. They can look at that and then seen if it something they want to induce vomiting to get him to try and bring it up. Some material is more risky so it shouldn't be attempted to be brought up. They can do this in the safest manner.

I'm not currently set up to field a call at this time. This material that he ate. There is a possibility that the pieces he ate were chewed small enough that they can be vomited up or passed easily. That is the unknown though.
