Hello again and thanks for waiting.I have worked out an answer for you below ...1. This is not such a serious situation in terms of toxicity, you may see a mild transient bout of vomiting and / or diarrhoea but I would not expect worse than that. 2. Probably all you need to do is just to monitor her for present and if mild symptoms set in then withhold food { but not water } for the next eight hours or so and then give her a bland diet until she starts to recover. 3. Of course if more severe symptoms set in then you should have a vet check her over without delay but this would be unlikely. I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.Regards, ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
