Do you think he chewed it first so that there might be sharp edges? Geez, if a Pom tried to swallow one of my lenses I don't think it would go down. I'm very short sighted so my lenses are big and thick.

My only suggestion is keep in close contact with your Vet and find out now what your options are if you have an emergency on the weekend when your Vet is closed.

Puppies are nuts when it comes to the things they'll put in their mouths! When my dogs were pups they ate staples, many pairs of shoes, the wall :mad:, my cell phone... I'm sure I'm forgetting some.

What you can do is watch. You're going to be looking for vomiting, diarrhea (or lack of poo entirely), blood in either, abdominal tenderness, not eating or drinking.

Try not to panic too much. These things happen to all of us :)
