These are all relatively safe. The most you're likely to see is vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea and some mild weakness.

If you see any muscle tremors, seizures or labored breathing- then I would go to a vet and start some IV fluids to flush it out of her system and symptomatic care as needed.

I think the chances of seeing serious signs are unlikely, but keep a close eye on her for 6-12 hours to be sure.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
