Will marshmallows hurt a dog if they eat them?

Will marshmallows hurt a dog if they eat them?
Hello there,

What does the dog weigh?

How many were ingested?

How long ago were they ingested?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
She weighs about 60-70lbs. Shelves them and gets about 20 mini marshmallows every night. Last night.
Marshmallows are not toxic to dogs but the sugar can cause diarrhea if enough is ingested. In a dog that size it is unlikely that amount should not cause problems. If there has been no diarrhea at this point it is unlikely you will see any.
