Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

According to the MSDS page for this product: Unlikely due to physical form of this product. Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal upset with possible vomiting, cramps and diarrhea.

Luckily this will not harm Jewel. You can use a dawn liquid soap to get it out of her hair, rinse her mouth out thoroughly, and feed her a bland diet tonight of white rice and lean boiled meat to absorb any product that she did swallow.

Please monitor for the gi upset listed above and withdraw food/ water for 6-8 hours if seen. If vomiting is not subsiding please seek medical attention but I suspect with just biting it she should be just fine and no toxic effects are seen on their MSDS page (CLICK HERE)

Please let me know how else I can assist you both tonight. I am online another 15 minutes to answer additional questions
