Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Since your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds (1 tbsp & 1/2 tsp) then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.

If you are able to give me the ounces of ingestion I can calculate the level of concern but in the meanwhile please consider inducing vomiting to minimize possible side effects of this ingestion.

Please let me know how else I can assist you both tonight. I am online another 15 minutes to assist you...

Unfortunately I really do need weight in ounces not measurements if at all possible because chocolate toxicity is based on weight not size of ingested amount. Were you able to give the peroxide?
