Hi there. Thanks for the question. Let me see if I can help. I'm sorry to hear about your poor dogs issue. If you can use VERY gentle pressure on the object and it comes out that is fine. If with gentle tension it will not move or the dog yelps in pain or you see any blood- stop immediately and get to a vet right away. This should not wait overnight. Go to an emergency vet. You do not want to have the object damage the colon or rectum. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
