Customer Question

I have a chion
That weighs 8 lbs. she got some dove dark chocolate candy out of a bag.& ate several pieces. She is very restless and is coughing like she is trying to get something up. Do I need to get her to a vet immediately or is this something that can wait until In the morning?

Hello and welcome,

This is just a quick note to let you know that I am locked on to your question and am working on it now.

My name is***** and I am a small animal vet with many years experience and rest assured I will do my best to answer your question to your satisfaction today. However before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer for me so could you please answer the following :

1. How long ago did she swallow the chocolate { minutes or hours ago } ?

You can then expect a written reply sometime within the next fifteen minutes or so.We also have the option to talk things over by telephone or via an internet service such as Skype if this is more convenient for you. Please get back to me if this is more suitable for you. { There is a small extra charge for phone calls }

Regards,

Dr Scott
