Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

I don't see anything that will cause toxicity but it very well could cause gi upset.

Since your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds (1 tbsp & 2 tsp) then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.

This is precautionary to remove it from the intestinal tract but again I don't see anything that will cause anything toxic...best to remove it from her system to minimize the gi upset of the next few days

I hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today

I am glad to see you were able to view my responses earlier. Were you able to get Emma to vomit? How is she doing since you asked your question? I would love an update...
