Unhappy Dog Ate Fertilizer Spikes

Product: Jobes Organics fertilizer Spikes 4-4-4
I just caught my 4 year old lab eating spikes I had buried for my tomato plants. I'm not sure how many she ate...maybe 2... the nitorgen-phosphate and soluble Potash derived from , feather meal, bone meal and sulfate of potash.

Should I be concerned here???? It says keep away from children but no instructions if consumed...does not say keep away from pets...

Is my dog in danger?

Get your dog to the vet. I am pretty sure these are poison for animals. Better to be safe than sorry.

I would also be concerned that the spikes may cause an intestinal obstruction so please contact your vet asap.

Yep - go to your vet immediately.. If not good for children, not good for animals.

Red face Karina is out of danger!

Thank you Thank you Thank you, to all that replied to my question. I brought her immediately to our vet with the bag of vertilizer...they had to call poison control (cost me about $80) and the news was good. No harmful toxins..the worse side effect was that she could vomit.
