According to the MSDS sheet on Turtle Wax only isopropyl alcohol of all the ingredients (waxes, solvents, water, additives) is considered a potential toxin but in the concentration found in the product should only cause gastrointestinal distress in the form of nausea, inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea. Inducing emesis isn't recommended . Instead, Loki's mouth should be thoroughly rinsed out and and she should be encouraged to drink tasty fluids such as milk, cream, broths , or bouillons in an attempt to dilute the Turtle Wax.
