Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

I am happy to report that this will not cause any problems for Judy. It is true that chocolate can be dangerous but milk chocolate is the least dangerous and it would take several ounces of chocolate for this to cause any problems. 100g will not cause any problems at all. 200g will start to cause diarrhea and vomiting, over 300g will be where a dog of this weight would need veterinary help. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating.
