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

Luckily their MSDS page states: "INGESTION OF SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS MAY CAUSE GASTROINTESTINAL IRRITATION, NAUSEA, VOMITING AND DIARRHEA "

So in this situation as long as they didn't ingest the tube I would be monitoring for gi symptoms for the next 12-24 hours. As a precaution:

-Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg/ pound every 12 hours for a few days
-Reduce their normal meals by 25% and substitute in boiled white rice which is bland yet bulking

I suspect with the amount ingested you should not see any issues at all, it looks like it is not toxic if ingested to organ function but best to take precautions tonight to minimize gi upset.

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know if I can be of any further assistance tonight!
