I can understand the attraction for your pup as it likely smells like liver, quite tasty to your pup.I do not see any ingredients that would be toxic, especially in the form that they are in.However I would caution that you may see some nausea and loose stools because this is high in organ meats as well as quite a bit of fiber.

To avoid stomach upset, especially if she tends to have a sensitive stomach, feed a homemade diet of 1/3 boiled, lean hamburger or boiled, white, skinless chicken, all fats and juices drained off the meat, and 2/3 boiled, white rice for a few days.
