Ok shes responding to things just shaky and sleeping alot
Dog Veterinarian: Dr Scott Nimmo, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. The ingredients of these fire logs are such things as wood sawdust, ground tree nutshells and blended wax, the good news is that this is not likely to be toxic to your dog in any, but it may be an irritant to her digestive tract and cause a mild transient tummy upset and a little lethargy, but this should soon pass. The chances are she will be feeling a lot better by the morning and hopefully there will then be no need for a vet visit.

2. All you need do for now is just to keep an eye on here and if you are still concerned tomorrow or you note any deterioration then you should have her checked over by a local vet. But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
