Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Please don't give this a second thought, Marcelo is at no risk in terms of toxicity, the only problem ingredient would be the cacao but the amount involved will be way below any toxic level for your weight of dog. All the other ingredients are non-toxic to dogs. That said in this sort of situation it is always possible that a dog will experience a mild transient bout of vomiting and/or diarrhoea purely because of the sudden ingestion of unaccustomed rich " human " food. However, if this should occur it is not likely to be much of a problem and should quickly pass on its own.

But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely event that Marcelo's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
