Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
I believe since she did not actually eat the rat, then the dewormer should be fine. As well since she did not eat it, we should not expect her to have an upset digestive tract. If she did ingest parts of the rat, then I would recommend phone your veterinarian this morning and get another dose of dewormer just to be absolutely sure. One of the top ways dogs get parasites/worms is by eating small animals such as this.
If she was to get any sort of upset, which I think is highly unlikely, then you should see this within the next 12 hours.
