Do you still have the remaining contents of the warmer? Do you know the brand name?
Do you still have the remaining contents of the warmer?
Excellent.Most of these contents are inert once the warmer is used, but we do worry about iron toxicity. I am going to include a video I would like you to watch. They will show you how to run a magnet over the area to pick up iron particles. Please report back your findings.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQJAgEE7ae4&feature=youtube_gdata_player
There is a concern for iron toxicity, then, unfortunately. Now, a very small consumption may result in no symptoms at all but because there's no certainty on how much he did eat it would be wise to err on the side of caution and have him examined and treated, just in case. Iron toxicity can be lethal. You can see an overview of symptoms here: http://veterinarymedicine.dvm360.com/toxicology-brief-toxicity-iron-essential-element?id=&sk=&date=&pageID=3 His symptoms could range from nothing at all to death, but given his size I would expect this to be a more mild to moderate toxicity if he had only a small amount.
