Nothing. There's nothing harmful in the ingredient list for that product. Here's what the product site has to say:

"What Are the Ingredients?

  • Alcohol Denat – used in many over-the-counter products, this ingredient is used in many cosmetic products, to remove microbes that are left on the skin even after thoroughly washing it.
  • Sodium Bicarbonate – Has disinfectant properties and is sometimes used as a fungicide. It is also used to get rid of fungal growth and odor caused by dampness.
  • Zinc Oxide – When used in powder form, it contains both antibacterial and deodorizing properties.
  • Isobutane – A harmless, odorless gas that is used in many products used for personal care.
  • Fragrance"

As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Sadie wasn't intoxicated. There would be no reason to idnuce emesis or treat her in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
