Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 13 years. The Chapstick itself is not toxic... the oils in it may cause some mild stomach upset, but nothing more than that. However, if she at the container I would be worried. The Eos container is large enough to cause an obstruction unless it was chewed up into small pieces. Did she eat the container too?

No, less than half the Chapstick.

Good! She should be fine then... worse case would be some soft stool.

Best wishes!
