I am very sorry to see that you have not received a response to your initial question before now. I just came online and found that your question had not been addressed. How is your companion at this time? When did this occur? Was it the whole razor? Just the razor blade itself? Any symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, avoidance of food, etc?

Was the safety shield on the razor or off?

Razor consumption, as I am sure you've guessed, host a whole list of complications from GI upset to lacerated bowels. The absolute best approach here is going to be having your companion examined by your vet and x-rays taken to determine where this razor is located. They will want to monitor her closely over the next few days to see if she can pass this normally or if she will require surgery. If the shield stays on, the risk of laceration may be further minimized. She should be fed a highly fibrous diet to help cushion the razor and move it along through the bowels. I would recommend a diet of boiled rice and chicken. If she's avoidant of this, try mixing in pure canned pumpkin or boiled sweet potato with her regular food. If at any point you see nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, avoidance of food or water, pain in the abdomen, whining, pacing, sitting with the front end down and the back end elevated, etc. she will need to be examined and treated promptly. If this happens overnight, she does need to visit an ER vs. waiting for your regular vet to open as any complications at all could be life threatening.
