I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Henry, please? The cocoa in that mix can contain enough theobromine to intoxicate Henry (vomiting, agitation, tremors) if there were more than 1/16 of an ounce per pound of body weight in that mix. Regretfully, you won't find the exact amount of cocoa in the ingredient list.
