Good morning

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I am not worried

The levels of Theobromine, Methylxanthine and Caffeine are not high enough to cause serious signs

You might and i mean might see upset stomach but I doubt even that

Just watch for vomiting or diarrhea

Dont feed tonight

Update me this afternoon

Okay?
Paul
