But before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer to me, so could you please confirm the following :

1. How long ago did this happen { How minutes or hours ago } ?

2. How much does your dog weigh { In pounds } ?

3. How many ounces of chocolate did your dog get, was it milk or plain chocolate ?
