Friend, as you may already know the concern with the ingestion of a sock is the possibility of an obstruction. I would move quickly and get her to the nearest veterinarian and they can induce vomiting to get the sock out of the stomach before it goes into the intestinal tract.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
