Remarkably, none of those ingredients is toxic even when ingested in egregious amounts. Your daughter's dog might experience gastrointestinal distress - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea from ingesting such a large amount of an unusual "food" but she won't be intoxicated. I don't induce emesis or treat in any manner.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
