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

Good news, this product is just made of Mineral Oil 42.5% and White Petrolatum 57.3%. If anything it could cause some gut upset and possible diarrhea. So, unless she ate the tube itself, we'd not be overly worried here and would just want to offset any 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. And again we'd not be overly worried with her having eaten some of this as it is fairly benign for them.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
