Bell labs told me several years ago that it takes 1 blok per lb of body weight to kill an animal. So if a rat that weighs 1 lb or less and eats a blok it will die. Dogs that weigh several pounds have to eat several blox. I have always used this example when I get these questions. My presumption is that while a few blox could make any dog sick, it will take around 1 blok per lb of body weight to kill them. So given your question, it could make the dog sick, but would take about 40 blox to kill it. I would not test this theory, but if the dog has any kind of issues like diarrhea, vomiting, lethargic, etc, I would certainly make a trip to the vet. If there are no symptoms such as this, then just give him some water and food and watch him a few days.
Hope this helps.
