Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.
I am sorry to hear Nala is not feeling well.
Is Nala straining to defecate?
Any blood in the stool?
Is her appetite normal?
I see. It is likely there is either another piece of plastic moving through, or this is just inflammation from the original piece of plastic.
I would start by giving her a bland diet such as plain boiled chicken and plain white rice. You can also give a single 2mg loperamide (Immodium) tablet to help get the diarrhea to stop. Give her 24 hours. If she is still having diarrhea or starts to have vomiting or lack of appetite, then she should head to the vet for a good exam +/- x-rays, however it is likely this will pass with some time.
The raw egg could also be the issue. Raw eggs exposes them to salmonella (which is carried by all chickens and raw chicken products), which can lead to diarrhea that sometimes can be very severe. Sounds like you probably have a combination of both.
I think bland diet and Immodium should still be helpful, however if there is still diarrhea with Immodium take her to the vet to make sure there is nothing else going on besides a little upset stomach.
I wish you both the best.
Hopefully she is feeling better soon.
