My 10 month old Colie Shepard mix took about 8 Small

Customer Question
My 10 month old...

My 10 month old Colie Shepard mix took about 8 Small Brownie, maybe about a half pound and ate all of them. She climbed on the table to get them. That was at 6 :00 a.m. since then , we have gone on a 4.5 mile walk and sahe has played in the house. Since she is still a puppy , she is still sleeping. Should I brting her to the vet, anyway?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the Shepherd will be able to digest that. What is the Shepherd's name?

Callie

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Callie?

No, she has no other Health problems. Someone just rang the bell and my other 2 dogs went to the window and so did Callie. She acted like she always does when I get a delivery.

How long ago was 6 AM where you are? The theobromine in cocoa becomes toxic at doses of 1/16 ounce per pound of body weight but it's difficult to determine just how much cocoa is present in brownies. If she has remained unaffected for at least 2 hours after ingestion, she should remain unaffected. The signs of theobromine toxicity are vomiting, agitation, and tremors and the half-life of theobromine is a long 17.5 hours and so signs could conceivably arise for quite some time after ingestion.

I have to leave my computer for a few hours and so if you still need help please ask for a second opinion which is a service we provide at no additional cost to you.
