Hello again I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. This should be no problem, these sorts of packs which are labelled as non toxic do not present any serious risk to dogs, they typically contain glycerine plus a blue dye. It is just possible that if she swallowed a significant amount of the contents she might get a mild transient bout of vomiting and / or diarrhoea but that's about it. 2. There are no special measures you need take in this sort of situation other than just keeping an eye on your dog.I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
