You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

That rosin consists of hardened pine resin. The resin is edible. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but your dog wasn't intoxicated.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
