Hello, I'm Dr. Van and I will be glad to help answer your questions today!The ingredients listed should not cause any harsh side effects in your pup. You may notice some mild stomach upset or some signs of diarrhea, however these should be mild and of minimal concern. If you notice any signs of lethargy or your pet acting very ill then bring them to a vet right away. But for now I would just monitor her. Offer a small meal at this time to help the ingredients pass.
