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

This product's primary active ingredient is 2% imidacloprid which can result in drowsiness, dizziness, vomiting, disorientation, and fever with ingestion of more than an incidental amount.

Luckily the concentration of this product and the amount ingested should not cause any issues but if seen it would be gi upset such as vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy for 24 hours and she should return to normal.

In their MSDS of the product LD50 (lethal dose) Oral – Rat – > 5000 mg/kg which is a significant amount ingested to cause serious injury and/ or death.

So for tonight you an use a few precautions including:
- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound
- Bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat

If any symptoms would be seen it would be the first 4-8 hours so if she is fine by morning you should be able to rest easily. Again this will not be a toxic amount but always best to be aware of the symptoms to monitor for
