Not trying to re-freak you out, but it made me think of a golden I owned years ago. He swallowed a big chunk of rawhide and it swelled in his belly causing him a lot of distress.
He paced non-stop and wouldn't eat. He strained and strained when trying to have a BM with no results. He spent two nights at the vet receiving enemas and Milk of Magnesia (I think) before he eventually passed it. We narrowly avoided surgery for an obstructed bowel. The following 10 days he was on antibiotics and a low-residue diet to heal his irritated digestive tract. For that reason, I have never given rawhide bones since.
Again, I don't want to worry you. Most likely your Sydney is absolutely fine, just observe to be sure she has a BM.
