Thankfully, the marigolds (Marigold, Mary Bud, Gold bloom, Pot marigold) are all non-toxic to dogs. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but she wasn't intoxicated and will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
