Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to a assist you both today!

Luckily the amount of pesticide within this product is not toxic to dogs. It can cause mild stomach upset and if the strip itself is ingested can potentially cause a gi obstruction in a smaller dog but it will not be toxic to organ function nor should it cause neurologic symptoms

Tonight feed bland diet of white rice and boiled chicken and if you have it available pepcid (famotidine) over the counter 0.25 mg/ pound every 12 hours for 2-3 days but hopefully none of the container itself was ingested and monitoring for vomiting, diarrhea, reduced appetite x 12-24 hours is advised.

If seen then a veterinary exam is warranted but monitoring should be fine tonight. No need to induce vomiting either

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both tonight. I am online another 20 minutes to answer any additional questions or concerns
