Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. Welcome to JustAnswer! I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Nala. How much does she weigh?

How long ago did she eat the mousse?

Ok, how much does she weigh?

25-35 pounds

Ok, with mousse there is so much air in the whipping process that it can be hard to quantify the chocolate content and if it is a toxic amount. Given that it was dark chocolate, I recommend erring on the side of caution and inducing her to vomit.

Do you have hydrogen peroxide?

She will need about 30ml = 2 Tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide orally.

Then walk her inside on a leash with a garbage bag to catch her vomit.

If she does not vomit within 10-15 min of the hydrogen peroxide, she can have a second dose.

It is important that she vomit to the point of dry heaving, to know that her stomach is empty.
