You really should take the dog to the vet. Nails are sharp and can puncture the stomach or intestines of the dog if it made it into his stomach, it could also be stuck in his throat. If you think your dog swallowed a nail please take it to the vet.

Take her to the Vet! It sounds dangerous! Hope you are able to bring her right back home.

If she is finally okay I would rename her... SPIKE!

Pup could perforate the esophagus, stomach, intestines, causing bleeding pain and peritonitis and death. Or just pass nail.
Go to the vet. Is this even a close call?

Even if the nail is small, it might puncture the intestine. Better bring your dog to a vet. Whatever you do, don't pound the head of your dog as what you do to a nail.

I'm just taking a guess, but most likely, it will choke or die?
