Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help with this concern about Corona.

Unless the potting soil was moldy... and there's no reason to think that it would be...ingestion of this much potting soil shouldn't be harmful for her.

She might bring some of it back up within 30 minutes or so after swallowing such a quantity of it, in which case, I wouldn't feed her for several hours.

She might also develop diarrhea in 12-24 hours in which case a bland diet of chicken and rice should return to the stools to normal within a relatively short period of time.

More than likely, she'll pass this substance with no problems whatsoever.

I hope this helps to reassure you about her. Deb
