What are the ingredients in the dip?

At the very least I'd be prepared for rocket butt.

Um ... Well, I've never heard that horse radish is dangerous. The dairy component might give him the squitters, though.

No. And it's actually very healthful. A super food, anti carcinogen, pain reliever, can help combat infection. I agree the poos may be funny in the next day, but there is no principle reason to worry.

yah horseradish is good for dogs. Though it was probably the sour cream that attracted him. It's strange how dogs like spicy things. Mine ate a whole tube of real wasabi. It was an expensive tube!

I am always amazed at a dog's ability to self medicate. Horseradish, locust beans, catalpa beans, bark, dandelions. usually stuff that has anti-inflammatory, antihistimeine, digestive properties.
