Hello again and thanks for waiting,I have worked out an answer for you below ...1. The good news is that there is nothing in Holly Tone that would be considered toxic to dogs as such, as an organic product the ingredients are simply plant and animal by-products. 2. However according to The Pet Poison Hotline it can possible create a rock like ball in digestive tract if water has been consumed. So the thing to do as a precaution is to give your dog soft wet food such as canned pumpkin, cream soup over the next couple of days which will to aid in pushing the Holly Tone through your dog's intestinal tract. Of course if the above does not quickly start to work or if your dog deteriorates further in any way you should have your vet check her over just to be on the safe side. 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.Regards, ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
