My 4 month old puppy bit into a oxygen absorber packet that come from beef jerky and I’m worried?

So today I noticed my puppy had something in his mouth. When I took it out it was an oxygen absorber packet. I don’t even know where he got the packet from. Because I haven’t had beef jerky in months. But He had the packet in his mouth for maybe 10 seconds at the most. He bit a hole into the packet and I’m not sure how much of the packet he ate if any at all. He weighs about 25 pounds

    Silica packets are non-toxic and only pose a problem if eaten in proportionally large quantities as the silica absorbs large amounts of liquid and clumps in the digestive system.
