Hello, In a good sized dog like this, I wouldn't worry about the small amount of sunscreen that was ingested. The most I would expect to see with this, is some mild GI upset. You may see some nausea and then some diarrhea in a day or two. Other than that, I wouldn't expect any true toxicity signs. You could give some bread now to help soak it up in the stomach. That may help you avoid side effects. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
