About an hour ago I walked into my laundry room to see my dog sitting in his bed with the plastic pieces of a cloth harness. I searched everywhere for the rest of it but I couldn’t find any sign of it. I’m guessing he ate it... it’s a pretty large harness made out of pretty much leash material and it’s very thin. My dog is about 75 pounds. What should I do? I don’t wanna take him to the vet right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What should my next steps be? Is it worth it to go to the vet?

It will probably pass. We had a dog who ate a WHOLE bath towel. It passed. Nast, but passed.

Yup - it'll pass. Years ago, a neighbor's basset hound ate a pair of pantie hose. I walked in her kitchen as she was pulling a leg out of his neither end....ewwww.

Keep an eye on the dog, if it seems in distress or it tries and can't pass it, then take it to the vet - otherwise I personally would wait.
BTW Our vet is open and wearing a mask and gloves (had to take our dog in last week)

Loss of appetite followed by vomiting would be the most likely sign of distress with a blockage.

My bet is it will pass. Good luck!

Call the vet, let them know what happened, but keep an eye on the dog for signs of distress. The Vet may be able to prescribe a laxative or some other easy solution.
