Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. The good news is, you're dog will most likely be able to pass this just fine on her own. I would start her on Miralax (1/4 tsp every 12 hours on her food) to help keep her bowels moving. I would monitor her for any vomiting, if you see vomiting take her in to the bet for an xray. 99% of the time they can pass something that size though. Let me know if you have any other questions.If you could take a minute to give me a positive rating so I can get credit for this question, I would really appreciate it. Best of luck with everything!
