Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

While this isn't ideal for Pippy to have, the risk of harm is low. If anything we could see some short term GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea). Therefore, we'd just want to rinse her mouth and plan to offset any potential GI upset here for the next 24-48 hours. To do so, you can consider offering a light diet option for a few days. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. Further to this, if we see any hints of nausea, then we can also treat with an OTC antacid like Zantac (More Info/Dose @ If needed, we usually give this 20 minutes before offering food to allow absorption and of course you want to double check with your vet before use if your wee one has any know health issues or is on any medications you haven't mentioned.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
