Hello, I'm Dr. Deb. I'll do my best to help you today since the vet you requested isn't currently online.
I can understand your concern for Ricky but the answer to your question depends on how much Sentinel he might have ingested and how much he weighs.
If your dog is small, then there may not be any problem at all since Sentinel can be given to cats to prevent heartworm disease.
So, if you'd provide the size/dosage which Ricky might have eaten and his weight, I can tell you whether or not you need to worry about toxicity issues.
