If she doesn't vomit in 15 minutes repeat it.

Mix it in a little food or milk so she takes it easier.

While you are waiting for that to work check the chocolate wrapper and tell me how many ounces of chocolate were in the whole bar.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr Marta Lepes, Dog Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

You can only repeat the hydrogen peroxide once.

Joanne it has been one hour since I answered you're request.

Hopefully you were able to induce vomiting and get that chocolate out.

Or perhaps you took Sammy to an emergency clinic.

I'm going to bed now. but please let me know how Sammy is doing.

Write down the hydrogen peroxide dose and directions just in case Sammy gets into something naughty again.
