Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help.I do not believe that this will require any veterinary attention. The lip balm itself is non toxic, so if no packaging was eaten, I would not expect any effects other than minor digestive upset for 24 hours or so. I would suggest a bland diet for a few days, and close observation.
