Thankfully, there's nothing toxic at the concentration of any of those ingredients for pets or people. This is important because we necessarily ingest these balms after use. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Mack wasn't intoxicated and will remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
