Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your pup ate chocolate. They do need to eat a certain amount to get sick.How much does your pup weigh?How much chocolate did she eat (1 ounce, 2 ounces?)?What kind of chocolate did she eat? Milk chocolate is less toxic than dark, and dark is less toxic than baking chocolate.
