This is Dr. Christian. Welcome to JustAnswer. How much does your dog weigh? How long ago were they eaten?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
She weighs about 50 pounds. She ate them within the last 2 hours.
Expert:  Christian K. replied 5 years ago.
She should be just fine. I would take about 1-2 pounds of pure milk chocolate to cause a problem. She might have a some diarrhea or possibly some vomiting but even that is pretty unlikely. Give her some water and a regular meal to help prevent stomach upset. If you have more questions please reply back.
