Anytime we witness diarrhea, we highly recommend starting a bland diet. To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. If your companion requires a more palatable food, try adding in pureed baby food in chicken, turkey and similar flavors. Avoid those that contain onion or garlic in the ingredient panel. Work up to feeding exclusively until at least 3 days following the resolution of the GI upset. After this, work on slowly switching back to the regular food that your companion typically eats.

I don't think there's any way to give you a definitive no. If your husband acquires the name later on, let me know and I'll see if there is reason for concern. Many fertilizers aren't toxic and just cause GI upset but others can cause major symptoms and illness. So, in that case, we might be concerned more about a limping pet. It's never wrong to visit the ER if you aren't sure.
According to their website, this fertilizer is non-toxic but may cause GI upset. I would presume, then, that the limping is not due to the fertilizer.
