Is it the plastic part of the pen that is missing? Do you know where the cap is?

my 6 month dog just ate/chewed on a fine tip sharpie. The tip is missing, should I be concerned? She seems to be fine, she is sleeping right now. There aren't any signs of ink on her face
Expert:  Dr. Lori replied 21 days ago.

Just the tip of the pen is missing? All other part of the pen are there?

Expert:  Dr. Lori replied 21 days ago.

If all the part of the pen are accounted for then there is no concern. Monitor got upset stomach, but even this in unlikely. Your lucky this did not make more of a mess:)
