Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. There is unlikely to be enough chocolate in a mini Heath bar to hurt him. At most, he may have some mild vomiting or diarrhea, but it shouldn't be past 12 hours. If he is acting normal otherwise, it should be safe to monitor him. I would watch for multiple episodes of vomiting, bloody stool, diarrhea past 24 hours, lack of appetite, increased agitation or aggression, twitching, tremors or seizures. If you notice any of those issues, I would have him evaluated by a vet immediately. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. If you feel like all your questions have been answered, please rate my service. Hope this helps.

My goal is to make sure that you get all your question answered and all the information you need. If you are satisfied with my answer, please rate it. Rating it is the only way I get credit for helping you. If you feel like it is not helpful to you, or if there is more information you need, please respond back to me before rating. Realize that our conversation is not intended to diagnose or treat a condition. There has to be a valid veterinary-client-patient relationship established with an exam, according to law. You should always follow up with your vet.
