I would like to chat I don't think she will get sick but I would like to know what to look for if she does
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Christina, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

I am so glad you are here. That amount of chocolate should not be toxic for a dog her side. We worry about heart rate and rhythm problems at higher doses. I do not think you need to induce vomiting or anything like that.

It is possible that she may experience some stomach upset, vomiting, or diarrhea from it.

You can always give her some pepcid AC to try and settle her stomach to prevent stomach upset. Or just feed her a normal meal so that the chocolate is not just sitting in her stomach.

it was milk chocolate not dark or bakers, well she deserves an upset tummy for doing something she is not supposed to
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Christina, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

A pepcid AC dose for her would be 10 mg twice a day.

I'm sorry to hear that. I doubt she will have any serious problems from this. Just an angry mommy and daddy for the night.

when should I do the Pepcid if I notice diahrea
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Christina, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

If you notice her appetite goes down at all, or she is drooling more than normal, then I would start the pepcid.
