Fortunately, these types of insecticides don't contain enough active ingredients to cause problems for our pets. They aren't considered toxic nor poisonous.

Depending on the amount ingested, gi signs might be seen such as vomiting/drooling (usually within 30 minutes or less) or possibly diarrhea in 12-24 hours but this is about all that I'd expect you'd see.

You might rinse out her mouth with cool water but, other than this, no additional action on your part is necessary.

She'll be fine and I hope this provides peace of mind. Deb
