No, but it could potentially obstruct his small intestine. Let's see if we can get him to vomit it up by dosing him with 3% hydrogen peroxide at a dose of 5 mL (one measuring teaspoon) per 5 lbs of body weight. Giving it with a small poultry baster or eye dropper between his cheek and cheek teeth is easiest. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, please repeat the same dose.
