Thanks for writing in,

My main concern with eating a foreign object is the possibility of it getting stuck in her stomach or intestines. If it was small then it will likely pass just fine. I would suggest you feed her normally and monitor her for any problems. You'll be watching for inappetance, vomiting, etc. IF noted then you will want to get her to a vet then. I hope this helps!
