While I await your reply, I'll let you know that we don't typically see problems unless a dog ingests a large amount of White Out. It contains petroleum naptha, which is a category of toxin known as a hydrocarbon. The most common symptoms are drooling and vomiting. If the symptoms are mild, no treatment is necessary. It would be very unusual for a dog to be exposed to enough White Out to cause a problem after chewing up a White Out pen.That being said, it's also possible for pieces of the the pen to cause problems, but not common. The odds are overwhelmingly likely that this won't cause any bad side effects for your puppy, but to be on the safe side, you should seek medical attention if you see any of the following:severe vomitingsevere droolingshaking, tremorssevere diarrheaseizuresloss of consciousnesstrouble breathingloss of appetite for more than 24 hours
