My 14 pound puppy chewed my 0.3 oz of Monistat anti itch cream. Some of it was used and when I took it off her there was some left in the tube but she definitely ate some. What should I do? I can’t read the ingredients through the chew marks. She is sleeping right now. Please help

Thankfully, that anti-yeast/fungal cream is considered of very low toxicity to dogs when ingested. If any adverse effects arose at all, they'll be of transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea. Your puppy will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
