Hello, I'msorry to hear that your pup got into mischief and I'd like to help.How big is he?Does he have any pre-existing medical conditions?Was it black or red licorice?Was it sweetened with artificial sweeteners likew xylitol?
12 years old and 79 lbs.
just sugar and black licorace
Thanks very much for the additional information.
He's a big dog so he should be fine. In a smaller dog that much sugar could lead to pretty bad diarrhea, and you might see some loose stools with him, especially if he has a sensitive stomach.As long as it deosn't have artificial sweeteners (which can be very toxic in dogs) and he isn't diabetic he should be fine.
no pre existing
Great, then maybe diarrhea will be the only side effect you see.
Can I answer anything else?
Very welcome. Dogs love sweets but don't make this a habit as they are bad for them.
