How long ago did this happen? What is she doing now?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Not sure what time. He got it this morning and hid it in his kennel. My husband found a small remain of it about an hour ago.

He's acting normal, playing and stuff.

THanks for your reply. At this point, it is most likely not in the stomach any longer, which means that there is likely to be little advantage to having a veterinarian induce vomiting now. The risk you are facing, is that the netting could become wadded up and form a blockage, or, it could act as a linear foreign body, which can actually "saw" through the intestines, creating a life threatening situation. You will need to watch very closely for any signs of vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, or abdominal pain -- as these will likely be the first signs of something amiss -- and you will need to immediately seek veterinary care at that point.
