I will have to forward this after we are done to have that taken care of by the moderator. That is good that he's not having any vomiting and that he's eating and drinking normally. IN a case like this, is that aluminum foil going to cause a blockage? The signs to watch for that could indicate it are vomiting and loss of appetite for over 24 hours. AS long as he's acting normal, eating normal, and not vomiting - then it wouldn't seem to be an issue. He could have chewed it into smaller portions that could pass.
