The fact that you were able to write this to us is a good thing! This means that the rig did not get caught in your dog's throat and is causing breathing problems. We would assume that if that were the case, you would rush your Yorkie to the animal hospital.
It is not uncommon for dogs to swallow non-foods, although this is
certainly not healthy for your dog to swallow your ring.
If the ring could be considered to be moderate to large sized, do please bring your dog to the vet or nearest animal hospital...There, it will be determined (via x-ray) if it is too large to safely pass through the body...If not, it may need to be surgically removed.
If it is determined that it is thin and small enough to not cause a problem, it will be time to make sure that it does indeed pass through.
Because of the material, your dog will most likely pass this intact. You should inspect each and every bowel movement. Since this item is very thin, as you say, you will want to use a stick or other object to thoroughly check the feces.
If it does pass intact, this should happen 1 to 3 days after ingesting it.
How to Know if There is a Blockage
Even if the vet or animal hospital gives your the "Okay" do keep an eye out for any signs of trouble...If this gets twisted inside the stomach or digestive system of your Yorkie, you will need to rush your dog to the animal hospital or well equipped veterinarian. Look for
Any signs of discomfort or pain - Many dogs, when in pain, will act aggressively or retreat to be alone
No bowel movements or walking in endless circles but not eliminating
Straining during elimination
Again, if you see any of the above symptoms, it is very important to bring your dog for treatment ASAP.
It is important to not just puppy proof a home when first bringing home a Yorkie, but also to remember that at any age this dog breed is going to be very small. A Yorkie will find things on the floor that an owner barely notices.
Floors and areas that can be reached should be checked on a regular basis for anything that an owner even thinks may fit into a Yorkie's mouth.
