I am not worried about a toxicity however there is a possibility that it could cause some mild stomach upset and diarrhea. I don't feel that there is a need to induce vomiting however you will want to monitor her in the next 12 to 24 hours for any vomiting or diarrhea. There is a great possibility especially because she is a larger dog that you want notice any adverse clinical symptoms at all. Especially if she is a dog who has it pretty strong stomach and is able to tolerate eating unusual items. Obviously if she is having a significant decrease in appetite, excessive vomiting or diarrhea then it will be important for you to get her into your veterinarian for treatment.
