My dog ate a toothpick! Help!

it was a small blue toothpick. he grabbed it off the table. he chewed it and swallowed it. what should we do? will it kill him?

1. PLEASE CHILL THE HELL OUT
2. If he chewed it, he's fine. It won't harm him in any way. As long as he's not coughing or throwing up, you're good.
3. A small piece of wood like that wouldn't hurt him anyway, unless it somehow managed to scratch his digestive tract. Which is a very unlikely possibility.

Im not sure but hopefully he chewed it to pieces or his stomach acids dissolve it but dogs eat some crazy things.

watch your dog, maybe even try a laxative. it really depends on the breed. is it a big dog?
