Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.
I am sorry to hear about Katana. Was the active ingredient naphthalene? That is what I found online.How much did she eat, and how long ago?This can make her seriously ill if she ate much of it. I would call ASPCA Poison Control immediately(###) ###-####and follow their directions. There is a charge for the call but it might be covered by the maker of this product. They will know exactly what to do, and will follow up with your veterinarian if necessary.
The worst thing about naphthalene poisoning is that the signs may not show up for days, and by then it may be too late.
My best advice is to call the poison control number I sent you, and /or get to an emergency clinic.You can try to induce vomiting by giving her 1/2 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide in some milk or ice cream, but even if she does vomit, I wold call poison control and follow their directions. She should probably get activated charcoal at a vet clinic even if you do get her to vomit. This stuff is really toxic; it is the same thing as mothballs and a single mothball can make a dog very sick.
Please let me know if this is helpful and how she is doing.
