Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am sorry for the delay in response. If you would like to continue can you please answer a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Can you give me an idea how many ounces or Rolos did she eat?
2- The Rolos she has are made with milk chocolate, correct?
She ate wrapping paper as well, correct?
Friend, it is not likely for 2 ounces of milk chocolate (rolos) to be life-threatening to a 10 lbs dog. But, it can cause gastrointestinal symptoms like vomiting or diarrhea. The other concern is the actual wrappers that could become obstructed in the gastrointestinal tract. However, it is very likely she will be able to pass them in the feces. To be on the safe side I would try to induce vomiting with peroxide, this is what you can do:
1- To make her vomit give her 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide orally.2- Allow her to walk for a minute and move her belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If she does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.3- If she does not vomit after 3rd dose or you do not see the chocolate in the vomit, observe her for the next 24 hours. If she becomes hyperactive, muscle tremors, changes in respiration, etc. have her checked immediately by ER veterinarian, these are symptoms that could progress to life-threatening seizures or cardiac arrhythmias. If no symptoms after 24 hours (especially the first 12 hours), she will be fine.
