I'm sorry that your dog is giving you a fright right now but I have good news for you. The ingredients are not toxic in animals! It has a very very bad taste and is irritating which is why you are seeing the main side effect... foaming at the mouth. This can last for several minutes to an hour. The best way to help decrease the foaming is to wash out her mouth with as much water as possible. Getting her to eat something tasty can also help to get the bad taste out of her mouth. Other than that she should be fine. So far there are no verified fatalities reported from eating a glow stick. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating. Dr. Dan
