Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. If she just sniffed around the mound, I don't expect to see any problems here. She most likely didn't consume any. Even if she did, consuming small amounts is unlikely to cause any issues. It should be safe to monitor her from here. If you see any vomiting, bloody stool, lethargy, lack of coordination, tremors or seizures; I would definitely get her evaluated immediately. I would be very surprised if you see any issues from this, though. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
