Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. For dogs to eat soap is a common incident, and in my experience soap { any brand } is not toxic to them in any way. I think the hotel size bars are very small in any case?

2. What may or may not happen is that your dogs will have a transient episode of vomiting but usually that will soon pass if it should occur, but I have never known this to be a cause for concern.

3. There are so special measures you need take in this sort of situation other than just keeping an eye on your dogs. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if either your dog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
