I have a border terrier (17 lb) who ate a small reeses cup

Customer Question

Hi I have a border terrier (17 lb) who ate a small reeses cup yesterday morning. She seemed fine throughout the day but later in the evening I noticed that she drank more water than usual and did vomit twice throughout the night. Her behavior seems normal (except for drinking water more). Should I be concerned?

Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help. The amount of chocolate contained in that product is not high enough to cause risks of chocolate toxicity for your terrier. Digestive upset is all that would be expected from this situation, so I don't think you need to worry.
