Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today. I'm sorry for this concern for Casey but happy to reassure you that ingestion of a small amount of latex paint isn't going to be toxic for her.If enough paint was ingested, then you might see gastrointestinal issues such as vomiting (usually within 20-30 minutes) or possibly diarrhea (within 12-24 hours) but I wouldn't expect much more than this. You might want to flush out her mouth with cool water but she should be fine. I hope this helps to reassure you about her. Deb
