My dog ate part of one of my brother’s plastic train tracks.

Customer Question
My dog ate part...

My dog ate part of one of my brother’s plastic train tracks. I’m quite sure he chewed them all into smaller pieces before swallowing and he’s eaten a lot of odd things and have been fine but since some of these plastic pieces we’re quite sharp, I wanted to know what I should do?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your brother's dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Percy, 1 year and 4 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Percy?

He’s a border collie, 72 lb
