Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hoe I can help with your concerns today.

Do not worry, this small amount of toothpaste will not be dangerous or harmful. The small amount of soap may give Bella a bit of an upset stomach, & maybe a soft stool tomorrow, but other than that I would not worry.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thank you.

Bella had toothpaste not soap. Your response said soap. She had arm and hammer baking soda toothpaste
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Bella only weighs 5 lbs
Dog Specialist: Dr Linda, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Toothpaste is essentially soap. It is flavored, but essentially that is what toothpaste is. So a little bit will cause no harm at all.
