Chewydawg: Bath salts usually contain magnesium sulfate and sodium bicarbonate and some sort of scent. Magnesium sulfate is the major ingredient of Milk of magnesium which is used as a laxative; sodium bicarbonate is baking soda. Neither in small amounts is very toxic. Larger amounts of magnesium sulfate will cause diarrhea, loss of potassium and dehydration. So it depends on how big your dog is and how much he ate. How is your dog now?
