How long before oxalic acid poisoning symptoms appear in a small dog?

I cleaned the kitchen floor Friday afternoon with Zud, a cleaner that contains oxalic acid. My ten pound shitz-hu puppy accidentally got into the kitchen and ran around a bunch (little white paw prints all over the house). I'm pretty sure she didn't ingest it, but just in case how long would it take before symptoms would appear? It's been at least 24 hours and she doesn't show any significant symptoms. She may be pooping a little more frequently (but same total daily volume and consistency-sorry if too much detail) and she may be drinking a little more (or I might be paying closer attention), but she has the same appetite, energy level, and urinary habits. I just need to know how long I need to watch her or if she's already in the clear? Thanks in advance.

How long does an acute HIV symptoms last?

Acute HIV symptoms, otherwise known as a primary infection response, may or may not occur in any given individual.When they do occur, they take place during the process of what is called seroconversion. This is the process during which HIV establishes itself in the bloodstream and during which antibodies begin to be produced.This process is known to occur as little as several weeks after initial exposure to several months after initial exposure.The symptoms, when and if they occur, mimic those of other viral infections like colds or mild influenza. They rarely last longer than several days to a couple of weeks. Some people have reported longer episodes.It's important to understand that these symptoms are not AIDS, which would likely take ten years or longer to develop in the absence of treatment.With treatment, AIDS can practically always be prevented.It's also important to understand that a primary infection response is no way to judge if HIV infection has taken place. There is no way to know if any given symptoms are related to HIV.To know, you must be tested. See your doctor or go to an HIV clinic.
