Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. This is an interesting situation with Karli. What may be happening that allows her to do just this is that the foil wrappers are of a big enough / irregular enough shape that they are not exiting the stomach. They are basically sitting in the stomach and having the food around it digested and passed. The digested food enters into the intestinal tract to continue on its journey through the intestinal tract while the foil is sitting in the stomach not being able to be passed. Then when she felt nauseated, she was able to vomit the foil up and not necessarily the food as it had already passed further on down the tract. Now, is this situation resolved? Or is there more vomiting to happen? That is the unknown. If she vomits more, then she should be seen by your vet for further evaluation. I'm hoping for the best for her.
