Customer Question

My dog just threw up (pretty violently) a lot of wrappers of Halloween chocolate candy. I don't know if there's more or how much he ate but he's a 70lb dog. He is very lethargic now and seems weak but it's also late in the night. What should I do?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long ago would you estimate he could have ingested the chocolate?

Any changes to his breathing?

What color are his gums (pink or pale/white)? Are they moist or sticky?

I see he isn't keen to take water, but can he keep anything down at all?
