Hello again I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. In my experience smaller objects like this will just pass along your dog's alimentary tract without problem, however there is a small risk of an alimentary tract obstruction in a small breed dog like yours. 2. In most cases all you would need to do is to just monitor your dog but if you want to do everything possible then one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the object that way. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion { Two hours at the absolute outside } then this may be possible. For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best : LINK 3. However if you fail to recover this object by inducing vomiting and if any odd symptoms occur then you should have your dog checked over by a vet without delay. In your case expected side effects { Of alimentary tract obstruction } would include vomiting, lethargy, not eating, straining or abdominal pain.I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you. Regards, ***** ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
