Freesia is non-toxic to dogs. Unless there were other ingredients in the sachet which were toxic, there would be no reason to induce emesis. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but I would expect Driver to remain safe. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
