I am sorry to hear your puppy ate a slipper. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
How long ago he get it? It is possible that the slipper is causing a blockage, and having him checked out as soon as possible would be best. If he can't keep water or food down, a blockage is possible.
If you look at his gums, do they look bright pink, or pale? If pale, then definitely go to emergency as soon as you can.
Let me know what other questions I can answer.
If he only ate pieces, and not the whole thing, that might pass. Has he vomited up the pieces?
Are his gums pink, or pale? If pale, I would go to emergency. If his gums are pink and he is resting, I might wait until morning.
If he is unable to eat and drink, or if he eats or drinks and the food or water is vomited right back up, I would go to emergency.
Please only respond here; do not open new questions on the same topic!
