Hello again I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. Good news! My understanding is that these sorts of products only contain mint leaves, no tobacco and no nicotine. This being the case you have no problem since mint is not toxic to dogs and indeed has been prescribed for them in the past. That said the odd dog may get a mild transient bout of vomiting and / or diarrhoea but that's about it. 2. There are no special measures you need take in this sort of situation, just keep an eye on Darla, in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if her condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me furtherI 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.
