My dog ate the wrapper that goes around a piece of bologna. Is it harmful to her? I don't want to lose her or have her hurt.

Since these posts take days, I hope you are now still the owner of a healthy pooch. When something like this comes up, please do not wait for us. We love helping, but often the situation calls for more serious and immediate advice.
We have had well-meaning folks write in and tell us their pet isn't eating. So unless the situation resolved itself within a day, by the time we all pretty much yelled "get to the vet" almost in unison, the harm had been done.
Call a vet, log onto purina.com and find out within an hour, not a week. Your pet will thank you and we all won't be biting our nails hoping your pet is still ok.
Well meaning member,

Here is what I got when I googled "dog ate plastic wrapper"...
I agree with Poor But Proud. It takes much too long for any of our typed information to get back to you. If you love your furry baby as much as I think you do call & ask the vet next time.
I agree with PoorButProud, but I'll add my two cents anyway.
If you're talking about those little strips, your fur baby will likely be fine. Our large dogs have eaten stranger stuff like socks, and even though they've occasionally needed a little help passing the foreign object (yuck!,) they're still with us.
I'd worry if this is an ongoing problem, though, and definitely talk to your vet. My sister lost a beloved Rottweiler because he ate one too many foreign objects.
