Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 13 years and I'd like to help with your question.

Those hot and cools packs are made of nontoxic materials. There should be no problem with ingestion. There was a case several years ago when some packs were made with ethylene glycol instead of the less toxic propylene glycol, but if it says non toxic then these packs shouldn't be a peoblem.
