OK please bear with me while I review the product. How are they acting? Any vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, lethargy, reduced appetite?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Neither have vomited. They are acting as normal except they are in trouble.. no diarrhea.. they ate dinner and drank water recently
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There was just a few sheets there of paper towel so I was concerned. They don't normally get in the garbage ever.

Great! So reviewing the MSDS for this product it lists for ingestion: Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

So there are no indications it is toxic to them, just monitoring for any gi upset for the next 24 hours but likely you will not note any issues at all if it has already been a few hours

Please let me know if you have any additional questions! It is always best to ask and make sure there are no issues, definitely

You are very welcome

If you note diarrhea please add some white rice to meals but I suspect at this point you should be just fine :)
