Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
I'm sorry to hear this and appreciate your concern.For some, they will vomit or poo out the knickers over the next few days. The larger a dog, the more likely the knickers would pass in their poo uneventfully. This is especially true if they have been chewed.However, there is a risk of them obstructing the gut. This could cause vomiting, lethargy, reduced appetite, abdominal pain and constipation. Monitor closely and if these signs appear and urgent vet appointment would be needed and Dexter could require surgery to remove the object.
