Best Answer

depends on what is in the paint, there are many different mixtures that will create a semi-gloss finish

Modern paints are not as toxic as older paints used to be so I would suspect your dog to be ok but would avoid letting him/her eat any in the future

Is semi gloss paint okay for a bedroom?

At one time paint only came in a limited gloss range, flat, semi-gloss and high-gloss. The higher the gloss factor the harder the paint... the harder the paint the more washable it is. People used to only use high gloss or semi-gloss in kitchens and bathrooms so they could keep the rooms cleaner. These days, with the availability of a wider selection of gloss finishes and the tendency for people to paint more frequently, it is no long essential to use semi-gloss in your kitchen. I have been using a pearl luster paint successfully in kitchen for more than ten years with very good results.

The higher the gloss finish the easier it is to clean, the higher its durabillity and the more it shows surface imperfections.
