Hi there. I am sorry to hear about Ciarra's misadventures with cheese. Its possible that she has given herself gastroenteritis from eating things that she shouldn't have eaten but its also possible that she has an obstruction in her intestines from the wrapper.

Has she had any vomiting? Is she still eating when you offer her food? Has she passed any stool since eating the cheese? If so, what did it look like and did it contain any wrapper?
