She is a 2 year old cockapoo in good health otherwise. She didn't eat it but it was wet so I'm sure she licked it

Hi there,

Thank you for your question regarding your Cockapoo. Are you certain that she couldn't have eaten part of this mothball, or another mothball that could have been alongside this one?

Do you have the moth ball packaging there? Are these mothballs 100% naphthalene or are they 99% paradichlorobenzene?
