If it's been less than 2 hours, you can feed Athena a meal and then induce vomiting to see if the netting will come back up in the emesis. Failing this, you'll need to feed increased fiber for the days to come and watch for symptoms of concern which might indicate a blockage such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cramping in the intestines, etc. To induce vomiting, you'll use these instructions: https://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2011/03/15/how-and-when-to-induce-vomiting-in-pets.aspx Make sure to feed her so food surrounds and cushions the netting if it is to come back up.

If it does not, begin giving 1/2 cup of boiled rice mixed in with her regular dog food for the next 3-5 days. Watch closely to ensure that the netting is passed in the stool. If at any point you see the netting hanging from her back end, do NOT pull. Trim the netting with scissors and allow it to pass naturally from the body.

If at any point she is not acting right, she does need to see your veterinarian or ER vet (whomever is open at the time).
