Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. I have good news. The active ingredient is not toxic to dogs. If she has a sensitive stomach you may see some lack of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea. But usually there are no signs.

If she chewed up the trap and the plastic then she could develop a foreign body blockage. If she had a blockage she would stop eating, vomit a lot, be depressed, and had pain on abdominal palpation.

Does that help? Do you have any additional questions for me?
