Especially as a small amount was ingested. However, there may be a small amount of ingestion may lead to some GI changes. In the event any GI upset occurs from a change in diet I will provide the following discussion.

The GI tract is full of normal bacterial flora. However, at times this normal flora can start to alternate and change to a not as healthy flora. This can lead to signs such as looser stools and even vomiting. Triggering factors for this can be changes in diet, stress, parasite, etc. This all can have a profound effect on the harmony in the GI tract. Leading subsequently to gastro-intestinal changes. The following can help the GI tract to a more normal health.Psyllium, which is the active ingredient in Metamucil, can be added at a rate of 1 tsp/10 pounds of body weight twice a day to the food. This will add fiber and will also be soothing to the lining of the intestinal tract. This can be added to the food you are currently using and can be used as long as it takes for the stools to form better. It may be good to go an additional 3-5 days longer than when the stools return to normal also. Psyllium husk can be found over the counter at the pharmacy. Metamucil is one brand name, there may be many generic powder forms also to look for.Kaolin/Pectin also can be looked for to soothe the GI tract also. The following is an example, there may be many different brand names to look for also:https://www.vetoquinolusa.com/pro-pectalin#tab-0-2Rest the GI tract and offer softer and more easily digestible food like hamburger or chicken with rice. This will be softer on the lining of the GI tract and is very appetizing to help maintain appetite. Pedialyte also can be soothing to the GI tract also and can help to keep the hydration status maintained along with fluid and electrolyte supplementation.
