These acrylic paints are water-based and considered non-toxic to us and our pets. Acrylics, in general, are quite benign on tissues. A few acrylics contain heavy metals such as cadmium, cobalt, magnesium, chromium, and lead but a significant amount of those paints would need to be ingested - much more than was present on that lid - before toxicity arose. Your washing it off was all that was needed. Bailey should remain unaffected.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
