HELP, "inhaled" ...

an entire Trader Joe's Turkey HOT DOG skin!!!!!!

My husband insists it will digest and pass on it's own, but I am not so certain, it was very thick skin and whole, I had peeled it off (like an apple skin) for my son who said it was too tough to chew!! As I was finishing it slipped out of my hand onto the floor and before I could say LEAVE it and block her with my foot, the skin was GONE ... HELP!!!
Will it digest? do I need to make her throw up??
She is behaving fine and had eaten HER dinner about 10 minutes before this, but I am concerned about it causing a blockage... it was NOT cut up in any way, the skin was whole, peeled off the 'dog' ... help!!

I wouldn't panic. Keep an eye on her but I think she'll be fine.

She should be fine... The stomach acids will break it up. It apparently passed through the esophagus into the stomach since you didn't say anything about her vomiting. That would have been my first concern; that she was able to swallow it without becoming choked and then that it would pass through to the stomach. Let us know how she is doing please.

She will be fine, Miller has eaten a lot of stuff that he shouldn't, muffin wrappers, paper towels, a chicken bone, gum ect... so she will be fine, her stomach will digest it just fine

I think she will be fine. Even though the hotdog skin was 'tough' it is digestable. The concerns are things like plastic which are not digestable (and yep, Dionna as a puppy tore into and ate parts of a plastic baggie and we had to go to the emergency vet.)

Tillie may have a bigger poop than normal but she should be ok.

These furbabies are so sneaky
