Hello again and thanks for waiting.

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Good news! : There is nothing in this sort of candy that is toxic to dogs and I am not to concerned about the wrapper as in my experience it should be small enough to pass with no problems.

2. There is nothing special you need do in this sort of situation other than just keeping an eye on your dog, basically she should be just fine.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,
