I am so sorry if you are having difficulties with the chat commandTonight please be monitoring for symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, increased excitement, water intake increase, muscle tremors, lethargyIf you see muscle tremors, vomiting is not subsiding, or hyper excitability then please consider a veterinary er because these can be issues with chocolate toxicity. But if you see gi upset only then this should pass within the next 24 hoursTypically chocolate toxicity symptoms peak at 4-6 hours so if you pass this mark without symptoms then she should be just fine but taking a few precautions tonight:- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days- Leash walks to help the chocolate pass more readily of >15 minutes- Tomorrow bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if she shows this symptomI hope this information is helpful and again I apologize if you are having difficulties with the chat format. I am online another 10 minutes if I can be of any further assistance to you both
