Golden Retriever around 60 lbs. The round up was on some weeds and still wet. I caught her rubbing her face and ears in it. I washed her off completely and washed her mouth out.
You will be glad to know that the active ingredient in Round-up glyphosate. It has a wide margin of safety. If the dog was exposed to the product when wet, ie licked it off a plant, there may be some mild GI upset. Once the product has dried it is nontoxic. I think that your friend will be just fine.
