Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and specialist and will do my best to assist you today!If this just happened I would encourage veterinary evaluation as soon as possible.An x-ray is taken to confirm where it is located, likely the stomach at this time.Then inducing vomiting may be considered.This should not be done at home as there is a risk it can get stuck coming back up.The risk of doing nothing is that it can often turn into an intestinal blockage which requires emergency surgery.For this reason, being proactive and inducing vomiting with the guidance of your veterinarian would be best.This is meant to be a running dialogue, and for this reason it is very IMPORTANT that you reply using the REPLY TO EXPERT button if more information is needed at any time BEFORE rating.Positive RATING (EXCITED FACE or 5 STARS) is appreciated as this is the only way I know you have received the information and I receive credit for my time.Please remember to ONLY rate my answer when you are 100% satisfied.
