Were these milk or dark m&m's?

Milk
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Friend, 6-8 m&m's (milk) will not be toxic to your dog; at worst he may develop mild vomiting or diarrhea otherwise he will be fine; no need to worry.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
