Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. The worry when they get into trash, is that they can develop neurological issues (wobbling, seeming dazed/out of it, a drunken walk, etc.) because of the bacteria in the trash releasing a toxin that affects the nervous system. I would recommend taking her in to the vet for a check up and to get her started on antibiotics and supportive care. This usually clears up over the course of a few days, but it will definitely need an antibiotic to clear it up totally.
