She is fine, I went ahead and gave her peroxide. Luckily I did not see very much tobacco
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 4 months ago

Keep a close eye on her over the next 24 hours. Not seeing much tobacco may mean that some resides in her stomach still and may be digested. If so, you may begin seeing symptoms soon. Watch for symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shaking/seizures, drooling, excitement or over-active response to stimulus, etc. It would be wise to have her seen by your vet today for analysis and observation, especially if you must go to work and cannot keep her under your watchful eye for the duration of the day.
