Tiki torches can indeed be dangerous to dogs. If the tiki torch has Citronella fluid, then it also contains flammable ingredients that are toxic. The manufacturer recommends seeking medical attention. You should not induce vomiting since any vomiting could cause small amounts to be aspirated into the lungs causing aspiration pneumonia.

Tiki torch oil can cause irritation to the gastrointestinal track and even nausea depending on the amount ingested. I would err on the side of caution and have your dog seen for supportive care. If that is not possible, I would provide plenty of water but withold food until morning and then start on a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
