Vegetables Made a mistake - Italian parsley and not cilantro

So, I made a big mistake this morning and gave my boys a lot of Italian parsley instead of cilantro. Their breakfast was supposed to be romaine and cilantro, but I have had a cold and didn't realize I grabbed the Italian parsley instead. I realize now I have been using my nose to tell the difference between the two.

I know they are only supposed to have a couple springs of Italian parsley once a week if they are over the age of 6 months (https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/diet-nutrition/61551-parsley.html).

Anything I should look out for since my boys have had around a week and a half worth in one morning?
It took me less than 10 minutes to realize my mistake but of course by the time I got in there all the parsley as gone and they were picking at the romaine.
No, they should be fine. It's when they consume it over a long period of time that you can run into problems.
