Hello again and thanks for waiting. I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. The ingredients of chapsticks are in all cases I have ever encountered non toxic to dogs, they usually just have a Vaseline like effect, when you think about it these products are applied to the lips { Of humans } they they would have to be very non toxic and wholesome. 2. I have known the odd smaller dog have a mild transient bout of gastroenteritis after such incidents but most dogs do not show symptoms so as long as the plastic container was not swallowed then you would have little cause for concern and there would be no special measures you need take. { If the container was swallowed then please get straight back to me and I will advise you further ... } I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
