This answer was rated:

My dog ingested lip balm (not the container). The total product weighs 0.25 oz. He probably had 0.2 of it. Do I need to be concerned. Thank you, Jackie.

Hello! My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to help you with your dog today.

Luckily none of those ingredients are going to cause Baylor any problem...especially in the very small amount that he consumed.

You may see some diarrhea from the oil in it, but he's a bigger dog and it is such a very small amount, I don't think you have to worry about that.

Tell Baylor I said from now on he has to stick to the non-organic Chapstick..it's less expensive for him to eat!
