It may give him an upset stomach. Just keep an eye on him and if he seems to be feeling ill: lethargic, vommiting, diarhea, refusing to eat...then you may want to take him in. I can't tell you how many things I got into as a pup. I think I only had to go to the vet once after eating the remote control. The plastic and I didn't agree wink

Do you have a poison control center in your area? I think I would give them a call and see what they say also. Good luck.
