No need to worry about it. Dogs have special enzymes in their stomach that breaks down plastic. Why do you think they can digest bones?

If your dog starts vomiting or shows any signs of distress, call the vet and get some advice.
Usually small plastic items do pass through a dog's digestive system with little or no stomach irritation.
But sometimes they can cause choking, intestine blocking or abdominal pain.
Keep an eye out for signs of restlessness, refusing to eat/toilet, pain and illness.

it will pass through... np. Just watch out for a blockage, no pooping etc. Whoever said dogs can digest plastic because they eat bones? Totally different enzymes.

My cat ate a medium sized black plastic bag with food inside. I was unaware of this. One week of constipation later... a pellet emerged. Forensic unfolding of the pellet revealed it to be the bag compressed to pellet size.
