Kandy; Could you please tell me where you heard or read about "The toxin has a cumulative effect, so over time the dog would be slowly being poisoned."?
I suggest you do a little light reading on the subject. The main way to treat a dog that has eaten onions, let them be, give them a day or two and all will be fine. WHY? Because the dogs body will naturally clean out the toxins, and they do so at a rate that far exceeds the amount of onion in this product. There is no cumulative effect at minute levels.
