Reply to Jav917's Post: one and 1/2 hours after she ate her dinner.
Vet said she may experience vomiting or diarehea. I beleive she pill with foil, cannot find foil.

I concur with what the Vet said about the diarrhea and Vomiting. As far as the foil, you can try feeding some bread or pasta (which is very starchy) to help wrap around the foil and it should pass through with no problems. Joan

Hopefully it passes in her morning stool. Maybe intact with foil wrapped. If she vomits frequently I will take her to the vet.
