  • Can you tell me how big the cookies were and was there a lot of chocolate in them?
  • How much does your dog weigh?
  • When did she eat them?
  • How old is she and does she have any medical conditions?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Not very big. Maybe six to eight chips per cookie. She's a 44 lb, 14 month old springer with no complications. She ate them about 30 minutes ago off the counter while I wasn't looking.

Thanks for the information. That's one sneaky dog. Luckily it would take a large amount of chocolate to affect a dog her size. Much more than what is present in the cookies so you shouldn't have anything to worry about. Here's a link with more about chocolate toxicity:

The worse case scenario is probably vomiting and diarrhea. These may develop over the next day or so. I would feed her a regular meal of dog food right now to "dilute" out the cookies and then monitor her closely. If you have more questions please let me know.
