Generally dosages below 9 mg/lb cause mild signs only, most commonly vomiting and lethargy. Ruby ingested 40 mg/20 lbs = 2 mg/lb. There's no reason to induce emesis or treat in any manner. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Ruby wasn't intoxicated. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
