Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

There is nothing toxic in this product but it could cause skin or gut irritation of Ladybug was in direct contact with it. Therefore, we'd want to rinse both her feet and her mouth with cool water to remove any residue. If you think she ingested some, you can try her with a small meal of a light diet (ie rice with boiled chicken, white fish, cottage cheese, or scrambled egg).

Otherwise, we need to keep a close eye on her. The spray could be a red herring and this accident could be instead a sign of a possible urinary tract infection. These do tend to cause discomfort, restlessness, urinary straining, accidents, and bladder soreness. So, if she doesn't settle with the above then that would also be a concern. In regards ***** ***** this for the moment, you will be limited in what you can do at home. You can encourage her to drink to dilute her urine +/- give a few milliliters of aloe vera berry juice (from your local health food store) to normalize urine pH. Otherwise, we'd need to plan to have a check with her vet once they are open to determine if she has a bladder infection that needs to be treated.

All the best,

Dr. B.
