Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How big a dog is he? Usually small pieces of plastic will pass in a few days to a week, but if this is a really tiny dog, under 5 pounds, they could be a problem.

How long ago were the plastic pieces eaten? How is he doing now?

I am sorry I did not hear back from you. How is he doing?

Let me know if this is helpful and what other questions I can answer for you.
