Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pet Molly ingested 1/4 of an almond bar with Almonds. Chocolate is toxic to pets in large enough amounts, so let me see if the amount she ate was enough to cause concerns for her.
Can you please give me the exact weight of the chocolate bar she ate. It should be written right on the package. I need this information to calculate if the amount eaten was enough to cause toxicity concerns. Thank you.

The size of the bar should be written right on the package and should be in ounces usually.
Ok. Thank you. GIve me one moment to calculate if this is a toxic dose. I will have an answer in less than 5 mins
Ok. So good news. The amount ingested was around 0.65 ounces. That is 1/4th of a 2.6 oz bar. For a pet weighing 12lbs that is not even close to being a toxic dose. Molly should be just fine. I don't even expect any GI (upset stomach issues) with this low of a dosage. No treatment is needed for her at this time. She will be just fine.
Also the almonds aren't a concern either. Only bitter almonds are toxin in pest and these were sweet almonds.
Is there anything else I can assist you with tonight concerning your pet Molly?
You are very welcome. I am glad that your fur baby will be ok. Thanks for using Justanswer and take care now.
