Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about this dog you are watching. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. I just came online and saw your question; I am sorry you did not get help from an expert until now. Most of the time pieces of tinfoil will pass through. How is he doing? Is he eating? Any vomiting? If he is a small dog, and it was a very large piece, there is a risk of it causing a blockage. How much does he weigh? How big was it, like 6 inches? If he is eating, continue to feed him. Feeding bulky foods like canned unsweetened pumpkin may help push it through. Let me know if this is helpful and how he is doing.
