I'm Dr. Sarah, a veterinarian with over 10 years experience and am here to help! How long ago? How big is the puppy?

I'd try to induce vomiting. Give him 1 tsp of hydrogen peroxide using a turkey baster or syringe if you have one. If no vomit, then you can repeat one time 10 minutes later. If she doesn't vomit it up I'd recommend getting an xray...a bottle cap hopefully is dense enough to show up. If it's in the stomach they might be able to get it out via scope. Silly Molie! Hope she brings it up! Kindly consider rating my answer; you can always get back to me with questions and updates after rating.​
