Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I wouldn't be too concerned about a potential toxicity issue with this medication. It is used in cats off label to help soften stools. It can cause some some cramping and nausea, though. If she is not vomiting anymore, it should be safe to watch her for any further problems. If she continues to vomit, still has excessive drooling, has bad diarrhea, has bloody stool, has abdominal pain or doesn't want to eat (especially tomorrow morning); I would have her evaluated by your nearest emergency vet. The problem with excessive salivation or diarrhea is that it can lead to dehydration very quickly, which can complicate matters with her. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
