Is there something I can feed or give my dog becuse I think she ate some grass that had Home Defense poison sprayed on it this morning.
Hello I'm PawsDoc I'd like to help you.
Home defense contains birethrin as a toxin. Please verify this on the bottle of possible. Luckily this toxin is in a family of pyrethroids. Pyrethroids are synthetic pyrethrins and are probably the most commonly sold OTC pesticides one sees on the shelves today. These have an advantage of being even a bit less toxic than pyrethrins (still toxic to cats, though!) and less insect resistance. There are dozens of pyrethroids on market now (presumably in an attempt to stay a bit ahead of the insect resistance problem). Just about any poison that ends in ‘thrin' is a pyrethroid (eg. Permethrin, Bifenthrin, Cyfluthrin, Resmethrin etc.).

So the small amount Sassy had ingested will likely cause no issues. If you now any vomiting diarrhea or lethargy please seek veterinary care otherwise just avoid further ingestion.

she had a bowel movement that had grass in it and was full of mucus and is antsy but otherwise follows me around when I leave the room, etc. Does all of this sound okay?

Yes that's fine- mucus in the stool is ok. If it develops into diarrhea, or if vomiting begins thats worth a very check up.
