One of our dogs chewed a small hole in one of our ankle

Customer Question

One of our dogs chewed a small hole in one of our ankle weights. The weights are filled with what I think is lead shot, very small size, about15 to the inch. Out dog might have ingested some before we caught him. We don't think he ingested very many (as it;'s not food). How harmful will it be if he did ingest some? Otherwise, will this shot be eliminated in his poop?

Can you list the brand name of the ankle weights so that I may look up what the company uses for filler?
