Customer Question

Our 7 1/2 lb. toy poodle, age 6 1/2years, just ate one small chocolate-covered raisin (dark chocolate). Is that enough of a toxin to harm her?

Friend, chocolate toxicity and raisin toxicity are very dose dependent. In this case, the amount of chocolate and raisin consumed is too small for toxicity to occur. No need to induce vomiting your dog will be fine. No symptoms expected. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
