Hello and thank you for your question. I'm sorry no one reached out to you sooner. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

There is no concern in your companion eating a spider of any variety. You may see some vomiting, but there should otherwise be no concern over this at all.

Let me know if I can help further.
