Friend, the gel itself is nontoxic, the concern is the plastic which can become obstructed. But, if he did not eat the plastic then it should not be an issue, your dog will be fine.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
