Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

If she only licked the coating, then her risk of any issue is low. Tablet coatings are usually used to protect the active ingredient of a drug until it is in the stomach and usually do not contain any drug themselves. Therefore, we'd just want to rinse her mouth with cool water to remove any residue and monitor her for the next 24 hours. If we see any sedation or lethargy, then we can consider having her checked by her local vet but this is unlikely here.

All the best,

Dr. B.
