Hello, my name is***** and I am happy to help you. Give me just a minute to read through the original post and then I'll respond with some advice for you

Expert:  Christi Belew replied 8 months ago.

Ok, thank you for your patience. I was looking up the common active ingredients and then comparing them to my toxicity book. The biggest concern with fireworks ingestion is tummy upset (vomiting & diarrhea). It is recommended to monitor for those symptoms and any lethargy. If this occurs, then I would recommend seeing your veterinarian.

You always have the option of seeing the ER clinic tonight so they can induce vomiting, but you want to do that within 1-2 hours of the ingestion.
