Hi I fed Sophie the three 100% cotton balls soaked in French

Resolved Question:

Hi I fed Sophie the three 100% cotton balls soaked in French Vanilla creamer just now. this happened this afternoon so I hope I am not too late! We are not sure what she swallowed but after this incident she went outside and ate grass...she did this about three times and then stopped vomiting. She is not lethargic but she does a hacking cough once in awhile. Is there anything else I can do...I am very short on money right now but if I have to I will take her to the vet.

Thanks!
Mary

If she is doing fine no need to worry I guess . But we do not know what did she eat do we ?

I would say watch for diarrhea . You can feed her with boiled rice and may be some bread.
If it was something like a metal object and a large one this could become a problem. Since she is acting well I doubt she did .

Do you have any idea what it could be and did it come out after the cotton ball ?
