Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question tonight.
We do worry about nicotine toxicity when a dog eats a cigarette butt. This is because the filter contains a HUGE amount of the toxin as it's designed to catch the nicotine when people smoke.

Since this happened about an hour ago, the best thing to do is to induce vomiting. The way to make that happen is pretty easy and can be found here: http://www.petplace.com/dogs/how-to-induce-vomiting-emesis-in-dogs/page1.aspx
Since as little as 1 butt can cause a toxic reaction, I would induce vomiting.
