If the package says that it is poisonous in humans, then it is likely poisonous in dogs as well. You need to contact a veterinary toxicologist immediately. You can reach one at the following number...

This is the Pet Poison Helpline.

They also have a website at:

There is a charge for this service, but I think that it is money well spent, since the toxicologist will be able to tell you without a doubt if your dog is in any danger, and what you need to do next.

I hope that this information is of help to you, and that your pet is okay. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
