I suggest you call your vet, and ask him. Then you should begin training and teach him the leave it command.

Bam-Bam, CGC

As long as she doesn't start puking and having diarrhea, she is likely fine. When Bam-Bam ate a bone that was too big too pass, the vet had me give him some bread with butter on it to help coat the bone. He ultimately puked it back up.

If he swallowed a whole bone that is long then I would be concerned. I don't know how long ago he swallowed it but a vet can take a x-ray and see where it is and if it is stuck somewhere.
I would take him to the vet asap to avoid any worse problems.
