Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Good news, I very much doubt if this incident is going to adversely affect Roxy very much, there are now no special measures you need take other than just keeping an eye on her, she should be just fine now she has vomited.

2. While chocolate can be toxic to dogs under certain circumstances they have to eat quite a lot, probably very much more than your dog ate before you would see signs of toxicity. I say this because the rule of thumb which I apply is that with milk chocolate mild signs of toxicity can occur when 0.7 ounces per pound of body weight is ingested. Severe signs occur when 2 ounces per pound of body weight is swallowed. If you estimate your dog's weight as being in the region of 5 lb then you can see that your dog would have to swallow around 3.5 ozs { Close to one quarter pound} of pure milk chocolate before any symptoms would even start to occur.

3. Also in my experience if serious adverse symptoms were going to occur they would normally have started around the two hour mark after ingestion, so if three hours have passed as in your case then the chances are you are in the clear.

4. However here is a link to a very accurate article on chocolate toxicity in the dog, follow this and you can check the accuracy of my advice and read more on the subject : LINK

5. There are no special measures you need take in this sort of situation other than just keeping an eye on your dog. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely event that Roxy's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,
