Hello, and thanks for writing in.This should not be a problem for Brie and Toby. It's possible that they may develop minor stomach upset (vomiting or diarrhea) from eating the red velvet pop tart, but it's not toxic to them. If they do develop any vomiting or diarrhea, I would recommend withholding food and water for 12 hours, then ease back into water first and then food after that time period. If any abnormal symptoms persist after 12 hours, I would recommend having them examined by a veterinarian, but this would be very unlikely. They should be fine.I hope this helps!Dr. Dave
