The absolute first thing you should do if you see your dog eating something potentially toxic is to either get the poisonous thing away from your dog or move your dog away from the poison, whichever makes the most sense at the time.

My dog is a fairly large German shepherd mix, and has gotten into things she shouldnt have before. Once she ate all of my Valentines Day chocolates. So, I knew how to induce vomiting and what toxicity signs to look out for. She had already vomited, but there was no way to tell when she consumed the edibles. I leave for work very early, so it could have been anywhere in a six hour span.

It really depends on the type of dog you have and formula used on the paint. If the dog doesn't chew it and trys to swallow it, it could get caught stuck in the air way. Also, the paintball swells with the saliva and fluids therefore causing asphyxiation. 2

Paintballs usually have a couple of inert carriers, a food grade vegetable dye and are encased in a gelatin shell. None of these products should hurt your dog even if she consumed a large amount of them. Also, the gelatin capsule will digest easily, so there should be no concern about them causing a blockage.
