Nothing good can come of giving it back. Just embarrassing for both sides. It's not a diamond ring - it should have gone in the trash and the owner never been told.
The dog probably got ill because it ate it. I don't think not telling the owner is a good idea. They probably don't need to tell that it was the rainbow coloured one it ate, but the owner should know - it can maybe prevent such situations in the future - not all dogs are smart and stop eating things even after getting problems
I disagree. if the animal is eating things that could harm it, say clothing, then it's your job as a vet, tech, etc, to give them both the object and info. if they don't know, the dog may do it again, and this time die. Sure it's embarrassing, especially if it's a guy, but don't hide this.
I have heard of worse, such as a dog swallowing unused tampons ... and used.
