Chances are it'll come out the other end. Yeah it might possibly get tangled and cause some damage but I'd take the wait and see stance. Think about how it comes out of the container, all coiled up, especially the small rolls form the dentist.
I've seen some incredilbe stuff come out the other ends of dogs who eat what they shouldn't. Their digestive system works so quickly unless it happened within hours I would think making him puke wouldn't help.
Unless he's already showing signs of distress I can't imagine what the vet'd do.
I could be wrong though....
How do you oil a dog?

When I had a similar problem years ago, i was told to give them the stuff to throw up, that you buy for kids, or alcohol to throw up. Otherwise, lots of foodstuff to give bulk around the thread.
Peroxide to make them throw up. It has to be done relatively soon from when the eating of whatever occurred! I'd check with the Vet first though. I have one that ate a Pampers (don't ask!!) and learned that some things will pass, luckily I was traveling with a Vet at the time.

They also have the option of going in endescopically versus full surgery, that's how they got the thread (and many sequins and felt) out of Poco but they still had to open him up for the needle.
PS: Once she's in the clear, this will be funny.....
