Ellie should remain unaffected. There isn't enough avermectin in these baits to intoxicate even the smallest dog. As with any inappropriate ingestion, transient GI distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but should abate unaided. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
