I will begin our discussion today with some questions to better understand your concerns. What flea product was it? Any changes since licked it?

Licking some of this medication should not pose much an issue as the active ingredient is absorbed into the body by way of the skin to get into the vascular system. Licking a small amount really just may lead to some drooling as it is not pleasant to consume and it may also lead to some GI upset from the product being taken orally. Likely this small amount will not even do that too.Most important these next days ensures keeps eating and drinking well.
