Be careful. Whenever I hear of my tiny patients eating anything indigestible, I personally get nervous. My best advice is to see your vet. Make sure everything looks okay. They may give your baby something to help pass the tape.

I see this every week in my practice: someone waits...and waits to see if something passes. Sometimes it's too late.

Be smart. Chances are everything will "work out' just fine!

Keep us posted!
