Default Persimmon dangerous/toxic to dogs?

I left the skin of a persimmon plus one seed in a paper towel on the chair of my piano because I was going to take it downstairs to throw away. However, I forgot and went out. When I got back the seed and skin was gone but the bottom of the persimmon is still here.

I quickly googled it and it says persimmon is probably not dangerous but the seed can cause blockages and is toxic?

Should I be worried? I'm not sure if she ate the seed whole or chewed it up. Is it going to make her sick or cause a blockage?

I suspect most likely it will be ok but what do you guys think?

I'd probably make her vomit just in may be too late for vomiting to to any good, but it's worth a try :/ I don't know if the seeds are toxic or not. You might also try calling the animal poison control (sorry don't know the number off hand)

I don't think I want to try to make her vomit since it was just the skin plus one seed. It's not like she ate a lot of it. Most sources I see just says it's toxic to horses.

I just searched its effect on dogs and all websites say
"Seeds can cause intestinal obstruction and enteritis."

I somehow don't think she swallowed the seed whole because she's a very thorough chewer but I think she'll be ok. Hopefully she won't have diarrhea or any blockage problems.
