This is an emergency. Please respond immediately

OK start with 3 tablespoons.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 11 months ago.

You can add it to some milk to get it into him.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 11 months ago.

If he doesn't vomit in 15 minutes, repeat it.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 11 months ago.

GET BACK TO ME AFTER THE FIRST DOSE.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 11 months ago.

What's happening Heidi?

I hope that by now that your dog has vomited.

You shouldn't give more than 2 doses of the Hydrogen peroxide.

Now we need to calculate how much she was exposed to determine whether she had a low, moderate or severe dose of chocolate.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 11 months ago.

That will determine if she is now not likely to have any more problem from the chocolate.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 11 months ago.

Thank you,

Good morning Heidi,

I never heard back from you. I hope that your dog is OK. Would you please let me know.

I always worry when I don't know the outcome.

Thank you.

Dr Marta
