Hi this is drB and I would be happy to help you....how long ago was the chocolate consumed and was it milk or dark chocolate?
can you tell me how large the pieces were of the chocolate?
Would you like to talk on the phone or do you want to just chat here online?
I need to know if the pieces were 1 ounce pieces and whether they were milk or dark chocolate and when your dog consumed the candy....
Since I am not hearing back from you I will go ahead and answer your question. Even with just milk chocolate your dog can get pretty sick with this amount of chocolate. You need to take your dog to the vet ER asap and allow them to induce vomiting with apomorphine, administer activated charcoal and give your dog IV fluid therapy. This amount could be life threatening potentially even with milk chocolate. With dark chocolate then that is very very serious. Please take your dog to the ER asap. I hope this helps you.
