Customer Question

My dog ate about three quarters of a chocolate cake. She seemed fine but woke me a couple of hours later extremely thirsty. She drank quite a bit and I refilled her bowl and she drank more. She is resting calmly now. She is 45 to 55 typically.

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long ago did she eat this?

Do you know how much cocoa was in this cake?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Can she keep the water down?

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
